A biennial publication, the Philippine Journal of Cardiology is a treasure trove of scientific research and case studies authored by noted clinician-researcher-writer PHA members. Initially entitled the Philippine Heart Journal in 1953, it was renamed as PJC in 1972.

The ever-evolving bi-monthly PHA Heart NewsBriefs is a lay-friendly news magazine that is widely circulated among the PHA members and their non-medical allies, such as the pharmaceutical industry, media sectors and the like.
