Educational Goals & Overview

Residents are expected to gain a level of competence in order to diagnose and treat common cardiac conditions independently. For less common or more complex cases, residents will be able to appropriately consult or refer.

Cardiology Consult

Rotations on the Cardiology consult service will be two to four weeks in length. In addition to the inpatient consultation service, residents will participate in weekly Cardiology clinics. Supervision will be provided by the Cardiology faculty, assisted by the cardiology fellow(s).

Cardiac Care Unit at Ronald Reagan-UCLA

The CCU at Ronald Reagan-UCLA Medical Center is a rigorous training experience with exposure to complex cardiac patients with high acuity at a quaternary center. The unit consists of 4 primary teams, each comprised of an attending cardiologist, one resident (PGY-2/3), and one intern (PGY-1). Interns rotate on service for 2 weeks. Residents are expected to learn and manage patients with acute coronary syndrome, arrhythmias, heart failure, and heart transplant evalution.
