Elective Title: 93MC731 — CARDIOLOGY TWO-WEEK CLINICAL ELECTIVE
This course is designed to serve as a 2-week introduction to Cardiology. This elective is ideal for students that wish to gain more exposure to cardiology-related physical examination skills and the management of common cardiovascular diseases. This elective is flexible; students may contact the course director if they have a specific interest in the field, so that we may plan their clinical experience according to their needs. This 2-week elective is worth 2 elective credits. This elective may be paired with vacation or another 2-week (2 credit) elective, in a related or different field. Students who prefer a more in-depth learning experience or who are considering a career in Cardiology should select the traditional 4-week (4 credit) elective, 93MC730 Cardiology.
