Currently, Cardiocentro is not only an indispensable garrison in the area for the prevention and treatment of heart disease, but a reality of international prestige, protagonist in the research field and strongly committed to training and holds important and constant medical and scientific relations with renowned universities and research institutes in Switzerland and around the world.
More recently, Cardiocentro has made its proficiencies and facilities available for the organization and startup of the new Faculty of Biomedical Sciences from the Università della Svizzera italiana, with a leading role in carrying out the Master in human medicine which started in 2020.
