Dr. François-Pierre Mongeon

Dr. Mongeon has been a member of the Non-Invasive Cardiology Division at the Adult Congenital Heart Disease Centre since 2011.  After receiving his degree in medicine from Université de Montréal in 2002, he finished his specialization in cardiology at this same university in 2008. He continued his studies in adult congenital heart disease and echocardiography at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. From 2009 to 2011, he studied cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and the Boston Children's Hospital, the primary teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School, in Boston, Massachusetts. In 2012, he finished his master’s degree in epidemiology at the Harvard School of Public Health.

Dr. Mongeon teaches CMR, adult congenital heart disease and biostatistics to medical students and residents in cardiology and radiology. He is responsible for advanced CMR training at the Montreal Heart Institute (MHI).

Dr. Mongeon is a co-founder of the clinic for aortopathies and connective tissue diseases. Under the umbrella of the Cardiovascular Genetic Clinic of the MHI, this multidisciplinary clinic evaluates and follows patients with a congenital disease of the aorta, such as Marfan's syndrome.

Dr. Mongeon's research interests include the imaging of congenital and acquired heart disease using echocardiography and CMR, the prognosis of congenital heart disease in adulthood, genetic diseases of the aorta and clinical epidemiology. He has published over 10 scientific articles, 30 abstracts of scientific presentations and 2 book chapters.
