Course Description
Mayo Clinic Online General Cardiovascular Board Review Course is designed for fellows and physicians who are within two years of their next General Cardiology board or recertification exam. This comprehensive online course will give you a personalized and adaptive online learning curriculum that will save study time, give you confidence to pass the exam, and most importantly enable you to bring the most current medical knowledge back to your daily practice.  

This Course Offers

  • Superior content from Mayo Clinic faculty:  World-class experts in each field give in-depth didactics on state-of-the-art subjects in cardiovascular medicine. Content is presented in a variety of engaging formats including video lectures, PowerPoint slides, applied learning imaging modules that mimic the imaging assessments, informal “chalk talks” and “MedEd” mini lectures.
  • Personalized learning experience: Physicians can test their relative knowledge vs. peers and identify personal knowledge gaps via a private self-assessment.  The results then inform a personalized curriculum unique to your specific needs.
  • An efficient study plan focused on those areas you need the most:  No users’ study guide is the same.  While all course material is available on the personalized platform for your review, your pre-test results drive the identification of individual knowledge gaps that then dynamically build a personalized study guide with content just for you. This enables you to focus on what is most relevant to achieving mastery, saving you time and frustration.
  • Better retention and mastery of content:  On average, physicians who completed this online course curriculum achieved a 32-point increase in knowledge demonstrated by the lift in scores from pre- to post-test.  For those preparing for board exams this a confidence booster and greatly reduces anxiety.  
  • Easily accessible anywhere, anytime:  The entire curriculum is available anywhere you have an internet connection, and accessible on both computers and mobile devices. We enable you to fit learning into your work/life instead of the other way around.
  • CME and MOC credits while preparing for your boards:  Submission of the mock board examination post-test with a score of 80% or higher makes you eligible for 44.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ and 62.0 ABIM MOC Medical Knowledge points.

Upon conclusion of this program, participants should be able to:

  • Utilize Echo and Doppler information for management of patients with various cardiovascular conditions;
  • Identify new echocardiographic modalities for clinical use such as tissue Doppler and strain imaging;
  • Recognize common and unusual cardiovascular conditions confidently by echocardiography.

Upon conclusion of this program, participants should be able to:

  • Diagnose acute coronary syndromes, select appropriate revascularization methods, and apply recent guidelines for medical management;
  • Assess risk in patients with stable coronary artery disease and choose evidence-based management strategies;
  • Recognize physical findings in valvular heart disease and choose treatment approaches based on individualized assessment of patient health status and comorbidities;
  • Diagnose, evaluate, and appropriately manage patients with structural heart disease;
  • Apply current guidelines and recent clinical trial evidence to the management of patients with heart failure with reduced or preserved ejection fraction;
  • Recognize the electrical signatures of common arrhythmias and select optimal treatment approaches;
  • Review basic cardiovascular physiology and pharmacology and apply this knowledge to key aspects of diagnosis and management;
  • Effectively manage complex patients including pregnant women, the frail older patient, and patients with multiple comorbidities.

Target Audience
This course is intended for cardiologists, cardiovascular fellows and general internists.
