Additional Comments: Cardiology receives patients on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday morning in general. Some Mondays we receive cases as well. Special appointments may be made on Monday and Friday. Monday is a procedural day whereby patients are treated for disorders that requirement fluoroscopy. Students observe such procedures as pacemaker implantation, atrial fibrillation cardioversion, PDA occlusion or balloon valvuloplasty. Students should always have reading material available on procedural days. On Friday we have special appointments, extended rounds, or echocardiographic practice time directed by the students. We generally have rounds from 9:00 am until 9:45 am. The latter is the time that our appointments begin. Please do not bring personal items to the cardiology room (e.g. backpacks, lunches, coats). There is no room for these in the room and we will have to ask you to store them elsewhere. Please do not use computers in the cardiology room as these are for faculty and technician use unless otherwise instructed. Thank you.

We look forward to you having an excellent learning experience!
