Elective Title: 93MC740 — ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY
This special elective is available for selected senior students who are interested in echocardiography and cardiac hemodynamics. This elective is a unique opportunity for the student to work directly with faculty members who have expertise in interpretation of cardiac non-invasive testing. The student will have the opportunity to interact with a new simulation self-learning computer program. It is hoped that students will obtain a better understanding of cardiac anatomy, physiology and disease processes through the elective.
