This is one of the series of courses using an organ systems approach to the study of clinical science. Students study epidemiology, pathophysiology, clinical presentation, diagnosis, and medical management of commonly encountered medical conditions affecting the cardiovascular system. Content synthesis is accomplished by integrating clinical cases with basic science and active learning modalities. Students will also be challenged to learn the fundamentals of interpreting and electrocardiogram (EKG) with an emphasis on identifying common abnormal EKG patterns and differentiating these patterns from normal and normal variant EKG tracings.
