Canadian Cardiovascular Society

The CCS Academy

Supporting the future generation of cardiovascular specialists

Trainees represent the future of cardiovascular care in Canada and are an essential part of the CCS membership. In 2000, the Canadian Cardiovascular Society Academy (CCSA) became a registered charitable organization to complement the Society’s activities and help support the educational goals of young, prospective cardiovascular specialists and researchers. The CCSA provides cardiovascular trainees with programs and services that span their career — from the moment they begin specialized training until the completion of their seventh year of full practice. Every year, the CCSA receives generous donations from more than 600 CCS members. To date, donors have contributed more than $1.2 million, helping to support over 1,200 medical students, PhD and post doc researchers, and trainees.
