Cardiovascular Medicine Grand Rounds
This weekly teaching conference (Thursdays from 7:00-8:00 am in The Hub for Collaborative Medicine) meets to review a case study, guest speaker, or presentation of active cardiovascular research being performed at the Medical College of Wisconsin. The topic and formatting of the conference will change on a weekly basis, as determined by faculty members from the planning committee.
Cath Conference
A biweekly teaching conference (Wednesdays from 7:00-8:00 am in The Hub for Collaborative Medicine) with a revolving didactic curriculum and related case review to enhance the invasive and interventional base of the fellow.

Electrophysiology Conference

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 jouijiri@mcw.edu and they will be discussed during one of the conferences.

Imaging Conference

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.

CVC Research Seminar

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.

Core Cardiology Curriculum for Fellows

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.

Journal Club for Fellows

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.

Ventricular Tachycardia Symposium
This is a two-day symposium on Ventricular Tachycardia, with a focus on catheter (endocardial and epicardial) ablation treatment of VT. It features nationally and internationally recognized experts on these topics. There will also be a hands-on, guided pig-heart dissection with a focus on ablation-related cardiac anatomy.
