International Heart Institute Foundation

The International Heart Institute of Montana conducts clinical research at Missoula’s International Heart Institute. The purpose of all clinical trial is the same: to determine whether a new approach is more effective than current ones in the prevention, early detection or treatment of disease. 

Today’s standards of care were yesterday’s clinical trial. Advances in medicine and science result from new ideas developed through research. Physicians at the International Heart Institute work with researchers to apply new cardiac treatments to the patient's bedside. Researchers and cardiologists have created an atmosphere of intellectual curiosity and discovery to advance cardiac care.
