Cardiology Medical Student Education
Students at NYU Grossman School of Medicine undertake an array of educational experiences in cardiovascular disease, including an introductory course, electives, and research. These educational opportunities are led by faculty in the Leon H. Charney Division of Cardiology.
The Cardiovascular Unit of the highly regarded Core Principles in Medicine course, led by Adam H. Skolnick, MD, provides medical students with five weeks to explore cardiovascular physiology, pathophysiology, pharmacology, and pathology. This unit offers standard lectures and seminars, as well as innovative educational experiences, including a design-your-own heart failure medication project, health screenings, active team-based learning exercises, and a final simulation exercise.
We also offer several electives in cardiology for students during their clinical years, including a Clinical Cardiology Elective, and a highly acclaimed Clinical Electrocardiography Elective for fourth-year students, both led by Jeffrey D. Lorin, MD, at the Manhattan campus of the VA NY Harbor Healthcare System. A clinical elective in consultative cardiology at NYC Health + Hospitals/Bellevue is supervised by William R. Slater, MD, director of the Cardiology Consult Service.
