Welcome to the Department of Medicine’s Cardiology online training curriculum. We make available these UMedic® programs that are proven to teach bedside skills while providing all elements of the complete patient evaluation and treatment.
Bedside skills in UMedic® are taught through video demonstrations of “Harvey,” The Cardiopulmonary Patient Simulator, a full-size manikin that simulates the findings of essentially any cardiac disease.
A consortium of cardiologists and educators from 11 medical centers across the country has reviewed each program and updated them to include:
- The most current procedures for patient evaluation
- The most current medical and surgical therapy
- The addition of pulmonary findings for each condition
- UMedic® teaches thousands of learners annually at medical centers worldwide
- Used at all medical schools in the UK
- UMedic® videos used in the American Board of Internal Medicine and Royal College of Canada certification examinations.
UMedic Cardiology online training series emphasizes pathophysiology and bedside skills and includes:
• Series 1-4 & Essential Cardiac Auscultation
INSTRUCTIONS: In order to add a sidebar anchor:
- Duplicate the existing item, listed as a 1/6 text field. (Or create a 1/6 column and add a text field, modify the class so it’s exactly “additionalAnchor”).
- Modify the text field inside the 1/6 column. Inside there, modify the HYPERLINK so that it would go to a corresponding section with a “#” in front of it. (Example, we have a “chief” section on the page, then it would make sense to have the hyperlink go to “#chief”)
- Then change the hyperlink TEXT to a appropriate label.
- IMPORTANT: If not done already, go into that CONTAINER that corresponds to your anchor (i.e. Meet The Chiefs), and add an ID matching the anchor’s HYPERLINK WITHOUT the “#”, i.e. “chief”.
- (If using side bar widget box, then there’s a saved copy of a widget box COLUMN, grab it in the column library, it should 1/6 of a length of a column.)
NOTE: Order added to the sidebar is from last to first.
