The Division of Cardiovascular Medicine offers a variety of conferences, which all physicians, fellows, residents, students and staff are invited to attend, unless otherwise specified. All conferences run from September 1 through June 30. Conferences are held at Froedtert Hospital, unless otherwise specified.
A weekly teaching conference (Mondays from 7:00-8:00 am) to discuss electrophysiology cases, procedures and current literature. This conference is held at the Clement J. Zablocki VA Medical Center.
The fellow assigned to speak is responsible to meet with the faculty member and discuss their presentation 1-2 weeks prior.
If the fellow cannot present on their assigned day, he/she is responsible to find a replacement 1 month in advanced and inform Dr. Fayn and the faculty member they are assigned to about the switch or replacement.
In addition to the scheduled conferences, any questions which arise on EP-related cases or interesting EKG's during clinical rotations or clinics should be emailed to Dr. James Ouijiri at email@example.com and they will be discussed during one of the conferences.
A biweekly teaching conference (every other Wednesday from 7:00-8:00 am) to review interesting echocardiograms, cardiac MRIs, cases in which the imaging was instrumental in the management of the patient, etc. It is typically held in the Center for Advanced Care (CFAC) 4th Floor Conference Room 4288.
This seminar meets (typically on a Wednesday from 12:00-1:00 pm in the Cardiovascular Research Center, Conference Room H4950) to discuss ongoing research projects being conducted by various faculty members from the Medical College of Wisconsin.
This seminar occurs twice per month (Tuesdays from either 7:00-8:00 am or 12:00-1:00 pm in The Hub for Collaborative Medicine) and reviews key articles attempting to cover all of the important areas of cardiology over a 3-year cycle. This serves not only as a mechanism for board review but also allows the fellows to perform a critical review of these journal articles. The responsible faculty member selects various articles to assign to individual fellows on a rotational basis; usually a total of three articles are reviewed.
This monthly informal conference (Thursdays from 7:00-8:00 am in The Hub for Collaborative Medicine) meets to review selected articles in that month's publication of Circulation, JACC, and The New England Journal of Medicine, with a faculty member present for the discussion.
