Gastroenterology & Hepatology Board Review Course 2020

Mayo Clinic Online General Cardiology Board Review Course will provide the cardiologist and internist with an overview of all aspects of cardiovascular medicine. Well-known experts in each field will give in-depth, engaging lectures on state-of-the-art subjects in cardiovascular medicine. Each lecture will be followed by a question and answer session with an audience response system. Although this course is designed specifically to prepare the cardiovascular specialist for the cardiovascular boards, it will also provide the practicing cardiologist or internist with an update on the latest knowledge and advances in cardiovascular medicine.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, the participant will be able to:

• Describe the etiology and pathophysiology of restrictive and other non-dilated cardiomyopathies and use this information to effectively diagnose and manage patients

• Recognize and diagnose venous thromboembolism (VTE) and pulmonary embolism using the appropriate algorithm for VTE diagnosis based on a pretest probability of disease assessment strategy

• Identify cardiovascular disease risk factors in patients without known CAD and use them to predict the risk of future coronary events

• Identify the classification and mechanisms of action of antiarrhythmic agents

• Explain the physiologic changes that occur with pregnancy

Intended Audience

This course is intended for cardiologists, cardiovascular fellows, and general internists.
