Description and Goals:
The Pediatric Cardiology Rotation combines an experience in the outpatient clinic, seeing patients under the supervision of the attending physician, with involvement with the Pediatric Housestaff caring for cardiac inpatients. Students will be able to evaluate infants and children admitted for diagnostic cardiac catheterization through their physical diagnosis, non-invasive evaluation (including reading of the electrocardiogram and exposure to real-time echocardiography), and attend all diagnostic catheterizations. If desired, exposure to surgical therapy can be arranged.
