Redesigned Website

I created the first website for the Section of Cardiology back in 2005. Since I was also in charge of distributing course notes for our Residency Program, it provided a great way to update teaching materials to our students.

When Cardiology merged with Cardiac Surgery and Cardiac Anesthesia to become the Cardiac Sciences Program, we added to those teaching pages with resources for patients, videos, professional links and more to become one of the largest and most comprehensive websites in Medicine at the University of Manitoba.

Now nearly ten years later, it's time for our third major overhaul; expanding to bring together all of our Program's social media applications.

Not only has the new look been tested on Firefox, Safari, Chrome and Opera, it looks great on mobile too.

For those of you with a preference for Internet Explorer, please be aware that it will look it's best on version 9 or later. If you have Windows 7, be sure to upgrade your browser. Both Windows XP and IE 8 are no longer supported by Microsoft and don't support some of the coding used in the new site.

I hope you enjoy the improved Cardiac Sciences website. Please let me know if you have any questions or need assistance in any way.
