Basic Science Conference
Lectures given by the basic science faculty covering the major topics in the basic sciences. Lecture series occurs in the fall.
Board Review Conference
Questions are reviewed from multiple board review resources.
Interventional Cardiology Conference
This conference serves as a didactic on interventional cardiology topics and a forum for discussion of patients with complex cardiac disease, with interesting interventional cardiology cases presented on a weekly basis.
Cardiac CT / MR Conference
Lectures covering the major topics in cardiac imaging. In addition, interesting clinical cases are presented and discussed.
Clinical Case Conference
Discussion revolves around cases that have been cared for by the presenting fellow either in the inpatient or outpatient setting. Discussion will be moderated by an attending physician, and all aspects of the case will be analyzed, with a special emphasis being placed on clinical reasoning, guideline-recommended treatment and use of the literature.
This conference series covers all the major topics in clinical cardiology. The series is repeated every 18 months.
Electrophysiology Case Conference
This weekly morning conference highlights EP cases performed over the past week, with in depth analysis on mechanisms and pathophysiology. ECG interpretation is covered from the basic to interpretation of complex arrhythmias.
Lectures given by a general cardiology fellow reviewing interesting cases with a discussion facilitated by an echo attending.
Assigned to the Cardiology Faculty who are expected to present the latest developments in their topics of choice or area of interest. This is also a venue for inviting distinguished outside speakers to come in and present their areas of research and interest. A wide range of topics are presented, from basic research to the latest in clinical trials.
“How To” Lecture Series
Conference series occurs during the months of July and August. The lectures are geared toward providing the first year fellows with basic practical knowledge from all major areas of cardiovascular disease. Special emphasis is placed on what the fellow will need to know when on call.
A fellow and faculty member are assigned for each session and they are responsible for choosing an interesting article. The article is briefly summarized and a discussion of its strong points and limitation ensues.
Lectures covering the major topics in nuclear cardiology. In addition, interesting nuclear cases will be reviewed, with a discussion facilitated by a nuclear cardiology attending.
