This is a 4-week elective course for senior medical students who are interested in cardiology and wish to integrate the clinical and basic science of cardiovascular disease. The course is co-taught by faculty from the departments of physiology, pharmacology, pathology, and internal medicine. It includes lectures, independent study time to prepare presentations, and the opportunity to observe and interpret data from clinical procedures such as Swan Ganz catheterization and cardiac imaging. The course reinforces the students’ knowledge of cardiac and vascular physiology and pharmacology. Students also investigate current clinical topics in cardiovascular research, and gain experience in critically evaluating the medical literature.
