PED 45013 - Pediatric Cardiology

Cr Hrs: 3, 6
Session Length: 2 and 4 weeks

This is a face to face clinical rotation receiving 3 or 6 credit hours. The student should function with increased autonomy in patient care and must demonstrate competency in several of the Entrustable Professional Activities required for graduation. This elective is designed to give the student who plans to practice family medicine or pediatrics the skills necessary for diagnosis and management of a wide variety of congenital and acquired cardiovascular problems in children. Emphasis will be placed on proper clinical skills, and on the utilization and interpretation of appropriate diagnostic testing. The student will learn to manage most outpatient cardiac problems and will acquire skills necessary in making judgments concerning which patients should be referred to a specialized cardiovascular center. The student will participate in patient evaluation, and in the interpretation of diagnostic data, including examination findings, EKG’s, and in the interpretation of reported echocardiographic and cardiac catheterization data. The rotation is predominantly outpatient, but participation in inpatient consultations is encouraged. Students will also be expected to attend Cardiac Catheterization Conference, Pediatric Grand Rounds, and Pediatric Morning Report.
