Teaching Methods

We employ a wide variety of teaching methods to train our Cardiology Fellows. Our methods vary according to the needs of each cardiac section. The teaching methods that we employ are specified in depth within the Section-specific competency-based curriculums and syllabi. In general, our teaching methods include the following:

  • Clinical teaching rounds, supervised by our attending faculty in the CCU and consult services.
  • Intensive one-on-one faculty supervision of fellows’ weekly ambulatory cardiology clinic experience.
  • Sub-specialty daily teaching rounds and conferences 
  • Didactic sub-specialty morning conferences, including:
    • Attending lectures
    • Fellow presentations
    • Clinical case presentations
    • Group discussions
  • Supervision of technical procedures.
  • Weekly core curriculum lectures
  • Weekly journal club presentations, performed by a rotation of assigned fellows under faculty supervision.   
  • Weekly Clinical Management Conference 
  • Cardiology Grand Rounds
  • Faculty mentoring.
  • Supervised research projects.
  • CARDIOSOURCE and other web based learning
