MED 45004 - 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 is a clinical elective offering the student an intensive experience in clinical cardiology under a single preceptor cardiologist for a four to five week period of time. During that time, the student will evaluate and follow a number of the cardiologist’s patients, participate in their care, and accompany them to the cardiovascular laboratory and cardiac surgery as indicated. Students will attend cardiology conferences, twice- weekly teaching rounds, weekly EKG teaching sessions and review a prepared sampling of the literature. Other literature reviews will be suggested as clinical material warrants.
