This elective is intended to provide in-depth exposure to inpatient care in cardiology, including daily ward rounds, bedside teaching and involvement of students in the care of patients with a wide range of cardiac diseases as well as exposure to subspecialised cardiology procedures and tests.
Medical students will be expected to follow and participate in the ward rounds, and assist the team, under supervision, in their ward work. Participants are also required to join in the many core curriculum teaching sessions and conferences organised by the NHCS for junior doctors.
Two to four weeks
Of note, students attached to NHCS will not be expected to carry out any ward-based invasive procedures such as IV Cannulation, blood-taking, pleural tap or central line setting even under supervision.
