Course Description: On the Acute Cardiology Service, the student will work closely with an intern/resident team and the attending in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with subacute cardiac disease. Patients include those with coronary artery disease, valvular heart disease, heart failure, and cardiac rhythm disturbances. The student will be introduced to the use of various modalities such as echocardiography, myocardial perfusion imaging, and cardiac catheterization in the diagnosis of cardiac diseases, and will be an integral member of the team developing a treatment strategy for the patients. Students will become familiar with guidelines and recommendations for optimal patient care. Currently each intern/resident/student team admits every fourth day, but students are encouraged to become involved in the care of as many patients on the service as they wish. All medical students taking cardiology Selectives will be added as users to www.uvarealm.com, the Cardiovascular Division's educational website.
