About Grand Rounds
Cardiology Grand Rounds offer physicians and other health care providers the opportunity to stay up-to-date on the latest developments in cardiology. These weekly meetings feature topics from the following cardiac specialty areas: congestive heart failure, electrophysiology, cardiac imaging, interventional cardiology, heart disease prevention, cardiac surgery, vascular/endovascular and miscellaneous.
Time and Place
Time: Mondays from 7 – 8 a.m., but with no meetings held from Memorial Day through Labor Day.

After attending this program, participants will be able to:
- Demonstrate improved awareness of emerging cardiovascular clinical care standards derived from new research.
- Discuss the implications of new cardiovascular care guidelines and develop more standardized approaches to treating cardiovascular disease.
- Utilize current evidence-based guidelines to improve standards of care for individuals with cardiovascular diseases.
