Mayo Clinic Cardiovascular Review Course for Cardiology Boards and Recertification (CVBR) will provide the cardiologist and internist with an overview of all aspects of cardiovascular medicine.  Well-known experts in each field will give in-depth, engaging lectures on state-of-the-art subjects in cardiovascular medicine.  Each lecture will be followed by a question and answer session with an audience response system.  Although this course is designed specifically to prepare the cardiovascular specialist for the cardiovascular boards, it will also provide the practicing cardiologist or internist with an update on the latest knowledge and advances in cardiovascular medicine.

We have included a sampling of our 164 CVBR course objectives for your review.
Upon conclusion of this program, participants should be able to:

  • Describe the etiology and pathophysiology of restrictive and other non-dilated cardiomyopathies and use this information to effectively diagnose and manage patients with these disorders
  • Apply current management strategies to the secondary prevention of CAD, including therapies to reduce risk factors and appropriate counseling on lifestyle changes
  • Describe and choose among treatment options for rhythm control in atrial fibrillation, including medications, cardioversion, and ablation, for specific types of patients
  • Recognize the presentation, select appropriate testing, and choose effective management options for patients with tricuspid regurgitation
  • Develop a comprehensive approach to the clinical evaluation of patients with systolic heart failure

This course is intended for cardiologists, cardiovascular fellows, and general internists who want both a live forum and online platform to continue learning year-round. This option includes both admission to a 5-day live course on the Mayo Clinic Rochester, Minnesota campus, and the use of the online personalized and adaptive course before, during and after your attendance (one year subscription).
