We have a very active role in the education of medical students.

The MEDECK 603, Clinical Cardiology and Electrophysiology elective attracts students planning to enter residencies in many disciplines including internal medicine, surgery, family medicine and anesthesiology.

Participants include students at the UW School of Medicine as well as visiting students from across the country.  

Students work with faculty, fellows and residents to see patients on the consult service at either the University of Washington Medical Center, Harborview Medical Center or the Seattle VA hospital.

Activities include:

  • Reading electrocardiograms
  • Observing cardiac catheterizations and echocardiograms
