The clerkship in cardiology offers an experience in the clinical evaluation and treatment of patients with a variety of cardiovascular problems. The students, as sub-interns, will function on the cardiovascular service as an integral part in the care of the seriously ill patient with a wide range of problems. The students will make cardiovascular rounds with one of the members of the cardiology staff, during which time clinical skills in bedside diagnosis, auscultation and palpitation will be emphasized and developed. They will have an opportunity to develop expertise in interpretation of electrocardiograms on a daily basis. The treatment of arrhythmias and heart failure will be stressed. They will also have an opportunity to evaluate in-hospital consultations as well as outpatient consultations and to see portoperative follow-up patients. They will have an opportunity to follow patients through cardiac catheterization procedures and to participate in the computation and assessment of the catheterization date. Indication for cardiovascular operations will be emphasized to weekly conferences.
