Conferences

Daily conferences promote self-motivated learning.  Fellows (with a faculty mentor) are responsible for presenting all but the core curriculum conferences. 

  • Monday: Conference on graphics (e.g., ECG-related echocardiography, hemodynamics)
  • Tuesday: Core curriculum of fundamental topics
  • Tuesday evening: Cardiology grand rounds
  • Wednesday: Medical grand rounds
  • Thursday: Review of ongoing research or a morbidity and mortality
  • Friday: Joint conference with members of the Interventional fellowship
  • a journal club
  • pro-and-con debate

In preparing for these conferences, fellows learn to: pose a question relevant to one of their patients; research the relevant scientific literature; address the problem selected; field questions from their peers; and to reach a conclusion.  These sessions are also intended to provide trainees with an appreciation of self-motivated learning and promote personal enrichment through a lifetime of learning.
