Cardiology

The clinical ideal of the Cardiology Section is compassionate, evidence-based care using state-of-the-art diagnostic and therapeutic modalities. Experienced faculty physicians provide close supervision and oversight of all resident care. The rotation on Cardiology Ward and Consultation Services offers residents the opportunity to evaluate and manage patients with various forms of cardiovascular disease or at risk for cardiovascular disease, including those with acute coronary syndromes, valvular heart disease, congestive heart failure, and dysrhythmias. The practice of preventive cardiology is encouraged. There will be an emphasis on basic electrocardiographic and echocardiographic interpretation. The rotation on Cardiology Ward and Consultation Services is mandatory for PGY 3’s. PGY 1 and 2 residents may elect to do the rotation as an elective. In addition to the inpatient rotation, residents may choose outpatient electives or majors in Cardiology with Rochester General Hospital’s full-time Cardiology faculty.
