Eric M. Horlick, MDCM, FRCPC, MSCAI | SCAI

Dr. Horlick is an adult interventional cardiologist specializing in structural and adult congenital heart disease at the Toronto General Hospital. Eric completed medical school, internal medicine and cardiology at McGill University and then did fellowship training in PCI and ACHD intervention at the Toronto General Hospital and never left. He was "structural" long before this name was used commonly. He was named the Inaugural Peter Munk Chair in Structural Heart Disease in 2015 and rose to the rank of Professor of Medicine in 2018. 
Eric has trained 32 fellows in structural and congenital heart disease from six continents and many more angioplasty fellows. He has mentored the research of graduate students, cardiology residents, medical residents, and students. Over a dozen of his undergraduate research students would go on to attend medical school. He has over 190 publications and has given over 400 invited lectures internationally. Eric worked with SCAI colleagues on the Fellows Courses and as a representative on multiple multi-society documents. Eric co-founded the Canadian Network for Adult Congenital Heart Disease Intervention Research, is a CIHR-funded investigator and clinical trialist. 
Dr. Horlick has received career-long mentorship from Dr. Lee Benson, a Master of SCAI and a model of humility, wisdom, and elite technical skill. He is forever grateful for this. Eric and Lee did the first Melody Valve in North America together in 2006. 
Eric has been married to Sheri since 1999, and the couple is blessed with two teenage children, who are their greatest source of pride and happiness. When friends, family, and Eric has medical questions, they usually ask Sheri, a social worker by training. Eric's parents, the late Harry ZL and Harriet, gave him the greatest gift of education, love, and support which made a career of doing something he adores possible.
