Didactic Conferences

Throughout the fellowship, trainees are encouraged to increase their teaching and administrative capabilities, assuming responsibility for various activities such as case presentations, journal clubs, research conference and assigned didactic lectures. Faculty supervision and assistance is provided in each of these activities. Fellows are active in medical resident and student teaching.

Cardiology teaching conferences are held on a daily basis, and the fellows attend all lectures and conferences. Conferences include didactic lectures, journal clubs, electrophysiology, electrocardiography, echocardiography, catheterization, vascular medicine, nuclear cardiology and research conferences, as well as professor’s rounds and cardiovascular grand rounds. Whenever applicable, conference time is divided between lecture material and case presentation.

Fellows will be supported to attend at least one national conference or extramural course each year. In addition, meetings at which the fellow presents a paper will be supported.
