The Cardiovascular System module, part II

The Cardiovascular System module, part II, is focused on understanding the nature, patho-physiology, clinical presentation, and management of the common diseases affecting the heart and blood vessels. Many disciplines contribute to the module including behavioral sciences, microbiology, pathology, pharmacology and clinical medicine. The module integrates the basic biomedical sciences of cardiovascular anatomy, physiology, and general pathology with the clinical disciplines of cardiology and internal medicine. A significant proportion of the module learning activities are multidisciplinary clinical correlations, hospital visits, PBL and simulation sessions. Use of standardized patients and Harvey simulations will reinforce initial learning of diagnostic skills in cardiology, and internal and emergency medicine.
