There’s no better way to continue to expand your knowledge of cardiology then to spend time with talented cardiologists. This week I am thrilled to spend time with the cardiology team at NC State College of Veterinary Medicine. NC state has an impressive cardiology program, with 6 board-certified cardiologists, 3 residents, and a talented support staff of technicians and research assistants. Their cardiology department is renown for their innovation in interventional cardiology and genetics of heart disease. This week I’ve been able to participate in rounds and case workups, watch numerous echocardiograms, and observe special procedures such as balloon dilation of congenital pulmonary valvular stenosis. Meeting adorable patients and spending time on the beautiful campus have been the icing on the cake of my visit!
