Patient Care and Management

All trainees become familiar with the role of aging and psychogenic factors in the production of symptoms and the emotional and physical responses of patients to cardiovascular disease. They are also familiar with the importance of preventive care and rehabilitative aspects of the management of patients with known or potential cardiovascular disease.

The trainees have considerable experience acting as a consultant to other physicians, and have direct, supervised patient care responsibility in proportion to his or her experience and qualifications. Extensive outpatient training is essential for learning the long-term course of patients with chronic cardiovascular disease.
