Course Description

This introductory course has been designed by leading cardiologists to cover clinical approaches to common cardiology complaints along with invasive and noninvasive cardiac imaging.

This course contains simulation modules on ECG and ECHO, where the students can experience procedures with a web-based simulation environment.

This self-paced course allows you to upskill yourself while managing your clinical responsibilities. This course is an essential first step for achieving your Fellowship in Clinical Cardiology.

Learning complex medical concepts in the traditional didactic textbook and lecture format can be alienating for students. It prevents the opportunity to apply this knowledge clinically.

Certificate in Essentials of Cardiology – Edition II incorporates a Case-Based Learning Approach within the Medvarsity Learning Framework to address this gap in medical education. With this unique methodology, students consume relevant medical content while learning concepts through interactive case studies spread throughout the course. Thus, students are provided with relevant specialty-specific cases and a clear structure for precise diagnosis and customized treatment plans on a case-to-case basis.

Additionally, we’ve partnered with McGraw Hill to ensure that the students are exposed to relevant and credible content with the latest advances in the course specialty through a variety of case studies, books, videos, and other learning materials. This is the future of online education, especially for healthcare professionals.

This course is Accredited by the Indian Association of Clinical Cardiologists (IACC) and AHERF, and our current alumni work at hospitals like Apollo, Medanta, Billroth Hospitals, and Columbia Asia Hospitals.

We at Medvarsity strive to equip every physician with the ability to fast-track their career and enable them to better serve the communities in which they practice. Join us, and let us impact healthcare through education.
