Description
The Pediatric Cardiology Clerkship provides students with a hemodynamic and developmental approach to the cardiovascular problems of childhood. Students actively participate in all pediatric cardiology activities in the clinic, the wards, and the ICUs of the Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital. The program emphasizes history-taking, physical examination, and interpretation of electrocardiograms and X-rays. Rotations include exposure to echocardiography, cardiac catheterization, and electrophysiologic studies. Students will learn principles of medical and surgical therapy, and will have the opportunity to spend time in the operating room with the cardiology team.
