Cardiovascular Disease Prevention Continuing Medical Education
At the Center for the Prevention of Cardiovascular Disease, we are dedicated to educating health care professionals on how to identify early cardiovascular disease and create effective treatment plans so their patients can achieve a heart-healthy lifestyle. Each year, experts from our center present two courses: Advances in Cardiovascular Risk Reduction and Dietary and Lifestyle Strategies for Cardiovascular Risk Reduction. In 2021, the center added an exciting new continuing medical education course, Management of Cardiometabolic Risk in Inflammatory Conditions: Improving Treatment in Psoriasis, Inflammatory Arthritis, Systemic Lupus Erythematosus and HIV.

The Center for the Prevention of Cardiovascular Disease offers an elective focused on preventive cardiology and metabolic health. The course allows medical students, residents, and cardiology and endocrinology fellows to gain a deeper knowledge and understanding of cardiac risk assessment and risk factor reduction through medical therapy and lifestyle approaches, as well as exposure to developments in basic, translational, and clinical research. Our faculty provide mentoring in areas related to lipids, diabetes and metabolic health, obesity, hypertension, cardio-rheumatology, thrombosis and hemostasis, physical activity, and nutrition.
