Cardiovascular

Cardiovascular is a 5-week course that integrates structure and function of the cardiovascular systems. It provides students with fundamental understanding of normal and abnormal functions as well as disease processes of both systems. These fundamental insights prepare students to increase their knowledge about the major diseases of these systems. This course reinforces and advances the foundational understanding of therapeutic modalities involving these systems. Students are introduced to diagnosis, including medical imaging and other diagnostic techniques, and treatment of diseases of the cardiovascular systems. Small group sessions use clinical case study to illuminate fundamental principles of biology and therapeutics.
