Outpatient Cardiology Clinic
Fellows participate in evaluation of outpatients referred to the cardiology clinics at St. Louis Children's Hospital and in satellite outreach clinics throughout Missouri. Each fellow is assigned to a weekly clinic at St. Louis Children’s Hospital under the same cardiology attending preceptor for 6 month blocks. Fellows also attend a monthly satellite clinic for at least two 6 month blocks. Goals for this experience are to hone cardiac-focused history-taking and physical examination skills; to be able to independently assess patients referred for common problems such as murmurs, syncope, chest pain, and rule out or diagnosis cardiac disease in these patients; to coordinate care and longitudinal follow-up for patients with congenital and acquired heart disease; and to effectively communicate with referring physicians.
