CARDIOLOGY

Cardiovascular disease is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in our community; therefore, it is of utmost importance that Family physicians learn how to diagnose and treat common cardiovascular conditions.  Along with medication management, it is imperative that family physicians learn the behavioral and lifestyle factors that affect cardiovascular health.  This is a four-week cardiology experience with the attending cardiologist at NGMC Medical Center (NGMC). Residents will round daily with the cardiologist at NGMC, conduct cardiology consultations in inpatient wards, and attend patients with the cardiology attending at their office. The resident/learner will become competent and/or familiar with the appropriate evaluation and/or management of patients with cardiac disease processes and diagnostic studies.
