Formal lectures and interactive teaching sessions are essential components of the training program.
A lecture series in clinical cardiology is available that includes topics of general interest to all fellows regardless of subspecialty, including biostatistics, epidemiology, medical ethics, end-of-life care and medical economics as well as the basic laboratory techniques. It is expected that the fellow will attend nearly all lectures at the site to which he/she is assigned for a particular rotation, and will provide an attendance form as evidence of such activity.
