Cardiology Inpatient Teaching Service

Comprised of a staff Cardiologist, a senior resident, and two interns, the inpatient cardiology team diagnoses and manages patients with acute cardiovascular illness who do not require an ICU admission. Common problems seen on this service include acute coronary syndromes, decompensated heart failure, valvular disease, pulmonary hypertension, pericarditis, and endocarditis. The team admits patients daily, with no overnight call for team members, as the patients are monitored by the on-call CVICU resident. Didactic lectures are given by the staff physician on service during established dedicated teaching time
