Clinical Cardiology for the Primary Care Physician e-Learning Series

The primary care provider frequently sees patients with signs or symptoms that may indicate cardiovascular pathology. The goal of this series is to provide an update and overview of the most common cardiovascular conditions seen in primary care, and to provide the primary care physician with a sound framework with which to approach patients with cardiovascular symptoms.  

The lecture series will use a combination of didactic and case-based studies to achieve its intended goals. Topics include leg swelling, palpitations, dyspnea, chest pain, EKG basics, arrhythmias, ischemic heart disease and more.

Target Audience

Primary Care Physicians, Physician Assistants and Advanced Practice Registered Nurses (General).

  • Identify signs and symptoms of cardiovascular diseases commonly seen in the primary care setting.
  • Recognize and perform the correct initial diagnostic evaluation of patients presenting with common cardiovascular symptoms.
