Rotation at a Glance
Medicine subspecialties are taught one-on-one by physicians who practice in the field and are a blend of outpatient and inpatient teaching experiences (depending upon the physician’s patient mix during rotation dates). Medical students meet their preceptors at their preceptors’ offices (which may be on campus at Overlook Medical Center, or near OMC but not necessarily on campus) and may or may not be traveling to OMC to round on patients, or for procedures.
Four weeks or two weeks, depending upon preceptor availability:
Successful completion of all third-year core clerkships
The Cardiology elective introduces 4th year medical students to clinical cardiology and helps develop proper techniques in obtaining cardiovascular histories and examinations; to develop a differential diagnosis and appropriate diagnostic plan; to gain basic knowledge of electrocardiography, cardiac catheterization, angioplasty, ultrasound, electrophysiology studies, and various modes of therapy, including indications, contraindications, and complications.
Students are welcome to attend daily House Staff Conference and Noon Report
Goals & Objectives:
Feedback & Evaluation
Feedback and final evaluation will be done by the attending preceptor. Students will also evaluate their preceptors and the elective.
