Course Detail
Course Components:
This course is an extension of MSCP 6301 and will further build upon previous experiences obtained during that course. Procedure observations will occur in operating rooms, cardiac catheterization labs, or the cardiovascular ICU located in the University of Utah Hospital and Huntsman Cancer Hospital. Students will learn to identify the role each discipline plays in each setting and identify the role each discipline plays in creating a successful, multidisciplinary team. In addition to observing various procedures, students will attend a series of lectureships presented by cardiac surgical fellows at the University of Utah School of Medicine. These lectureships will present disease processes and associated surgical interventions for each topic; along with current studies and trends related to each lectureship.
