Seminars and Events

Seminars and Events

Our goal is to further fellowship and professional education by providing a variety of learning experiences.  Our basic fellow's curriculum and other events are also available on the Calendar linked in the left-hand menu.  Offerings include:

Cardiology Grand Rounds

Grand Rounds are held every Monday from noon to 1:00pm. In this conference, local and guest faculty present lectures on specified topics. Graduating fellows also provide a CGR talk.

Mortality and Morbidity

Morbidity and Mortality is held monthly on Mondays when there is no CGR.  The goal of the conference is the prevention of complications by problem based learning improvement and changes in patient care, procedures, and effective communication among providers ultimately to reduce complications.

Journal Clubs

CV Disease Journal Club is held monthly in the evening at the home of a faculty member.  Fellows are assigned journal articles to read and present.  They are expected to discuss study designs and statistical methods and to appraise the clinical studies.  Fellows are required to attend, and normally many of the faculty also are in attendance.

Advanced Journal Clubs also occur.  Interventional Journal club is held from 12:00-1:00pm on the first Thursday of the month.  Check the Calendar for other events.
