Yuchen Dai

University of Ottawa Faculty of Medicine. He received his Bachelor of Music in Violin Performance from Wilfrid Laurier University where he was awarded the Gold Medal.

He is currently undertaking clinical research in cardiac imaging and nuclear cardiology at the University of Ottawa Heart Institute under the tutelage of Rob Beanlands and Robert deKemp.

Yuchen hopes to pursue training and a career as a clinician-scientist in cardiovascular medicine, ultimately serving the Canadian population. Outside of medicine, Yuchen enjoys playing tennis and visiting museums and is currently a violinist in the World Doctors Orchestra.

Through the CHAT program and their funding support, I have been able to present my research at major conferences including the 2021 Canadian Cardiovascular Congress and engage with international leaders in cardiovascular medicine – both in terms of mentorships with established professionals, and with fellow trainees and the next generation of cardiovascular specialists. I am extremely grateful to CANet and the contributions of so many Canadian cardiovascular specialists for this educational mandate. I hope to contribute and advance the breadth of research and evidence we rely on as clinicians and affirm the role of Canadian institutions, including CANet, as international leaders in cardiovascular research.”
