Overlook Family Medicine residents participate in the care of cardiac patients by working with a large cardiology group as the cardiologists evaluate patients, perform stress tests and cardiac catheterizations, and read EKGs and echocardiograms.
Residents learn to manage cardiology patients in both the inpatient and outpatient settings. Each resident spends one month in the second year in outpatient cardiology.
There is a series of cardiology conferences conducted by the cardiology groups each year. Additionally, residents get exposure to cardiology patients and problems during their medicine and intensive care rotations and through precepting of primary care cardiac problems during Family Medicine office hours.
