A weekly teaching conference with a revolving didactic curriculum and related case review to enhance the invasive and interventional base of the fellow.
A twice-a-month teaching conference (Tuesdays from 7:00-8:00 am) to discuss electrophysiology cases, procedures and current literature in an open. This conference is held at the EP team room in Froedtert Hospital with fellows and faculty assigned to lead discussions. 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 Oujiri and they will be discussed during one of the conferences.
The bi-weekly imaging conference is meant to enrich knowledge of multimodality imaging for the diagnosis and treatment of various cardiac conditions. The conference is directed towards fellow-level knowledge that they will need to pass their general boards. It is typically presented by individuals who have specific advanced training in imaging modality.
CVC Research Seminar
This monthly “Lunch & Learn” is the highlight of our CVC conference schedule, providing a forum to present and discuss both clinical and basic science topics. Our seminar series enjoys a reputation for hosting exceptional speakers and having active audience participation by faculty, fellows, and staff. It typically meets on a Wednesday from 12:00-1:00 pm in the Cardiovascular Research Center, Conference Room H4950.
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.
