Our world-class faculty and invited experts and leaders, along with our current fellows provide educational lectures in cardiovascular disease
The Cardiovascular Medicine Fellowship core training program includes supervised experience in the full spectrum of cardiovascular disciplines including both inpatient and outpatient cardiovascular consultation, critical-care cardiology, post-operative management of cardiovascular surgical patients, interventional cardiology, clinical electrophysiology, heart failure / cardiac transplantation, and cardiovascular imaging.
Didactic lectures are given once daily as a part of our structured lectures and conferences which includes our: Topics in Cardiology lecture series, EP/ECG conference, Multi-modality imaging conference, Cath Angio club, Journal club, Research conference, and our Week in Review conference. In addition, our fellows are free and encouraged to attend and participate in the sub-specialty conferences whenever possible.
Topics in Cardiology Grand rounds Lecture Series
The "Topics in Cardiology" Grand Rounds lecture series is our primary academic conference and occurs every Wednesday morning at 7:30 am in the Mailman Center 8th Floor Conference Room. Academic and research lectures are delivered by our own faculty within the division, faculty from other department and divisions, invited faculty from other institutions, as well as our own 2nd and 3rd year cardiology fellows who each deliver one grand round session yearly. All faculty, residents, fellows, and students are invited and welcome to attend.
Please note that currently during the COVID pandemic ALL lectures are being delivered via ZOOM. Please fee free to view our recorded lectures.
