    ECG 101: Boot Camp
    Objectives: 1) Learn how to comfortably and quickly interpret an electrocardiogram (ECG) 2) Rather than memorize patterns, understand WHY the ECG appears at it does 3) Identify features of ECGs that are associated with life-threatening conditions

    How to Live Forever: A Primer on Conventional, Complementary/Alternative, and Futuristic Medicine Strategies for Prevention of Cardiovascular Diseases 
    Objectives: 1) Explore the conventional methods of screening for cardiovascular diseases using case examples 2) Consider Complementary/Alternative Medicine (CAM) strategies to augment traditional medicine prevention strategies 3) Learn about emerging technologies that may shape the direction of future cardiovascular disease prevention

    ECG 201: On the Front Lines
    Objectives: 1) Building upon ECG 101, learners will continue to identify cardiac electrophysiology in pathogenic states (arrhythmias) 2) Learn the common types of arrhythmias, especially as they relate to specific patient populations 3) Develop concrete plans to triage and treat each of the arrhythmias that are identified

    Sorting Through the Headlines: Overview of Recent Major Trials and Controversies in Cardiovascular Medicine

    Looking Up: A (Re)View of Syncope
    Objectives: 1) Learn about the causes of transient loss of consciousness (TLOC) 2) Identify which patients are at high-risk for life-threatening events after a TLOC by essential questions, focused physical exam, and electrocardiography 3) Understand the role of additional testing (echocardiography, ambulatory ECG monitoring, tilt table testing) after a TLOC presentation 4) Learn about treatment options and goals of therapy

    Stayin' Alive: Sudden Cardiac Death/Athletic Preparticipation Screening
    Objectives: 1) Learn about the epidemiology of sudden cardiac arrest 2) Understand the role of an implantable defibrillator to prevent death from sudden cardiac arrest 3) Learn about the most common causes of sudden cardiac arrest in young athletes 4) Learn how to accurately screen for and diagnose conditions that increase the risk of sudden cardiac arrest in young athletes

    Killer EKGs - Subtle EKG Findings You Don’t Want to Miss 
    Objectives: 1) Recognize potentially life-threatening conduction abnormalities 2) Identify serious causes of syncope on the EKG 3) Decide which EKG needs emergent referral
