Cardiovascular Disease Elective at LIJMC

Course Director:

Bart Steinberg, MD, Director, CCU

The LIJ Cardiology Elective is a structured program designed to introduce the student to a wide range of experiences in clinical Cardiology. Daily ECG reading sessions with a staff cardiologist familiarize the student with an approach to the independent interpretation of this examination. The student evaluates and helps to manage patients in the coronary care unit. A weekly Cardiology ambulatory out-patient clinic exposes the student to the common (and not-so-common) presentation and ambulatory management of cardiac conditions. The student attends various didactic conferences during the rotation. The student is also familiarized with invasive and non-invasive cardiac examinations and will learn the indications and basic interpretation of echo-cardiograms, cardiac catheterization and cardiac electrophysiology.
