Obiettivi formativi
Practical activities will be used, through simulation, through the attendance in the ward or attendance of real cardiac or vascular surgery procedures in the ward, to consolidate technical and soft knowledge and skills developed during frontal lectures.
Risultati apprendimento attesi
At the end of the cardiovascular clerkship, students should be able to:
- Evaluate patients with heart failure: history, clinical examination, and EKG
- Perform and evaluate cardiopulmonary exercise test
- Evaluate patients with acute chest pain
- Evaluate patients with acute dyspnea
- Monitor patients with acute myocardial infarction
- Assess and manage pre- and postoperatively patients candidate to cardiac surgery, mainly adult patients undergoing coronary, valve ad aorta surgery
Programma e organizzazione didattica

Edizione unica

Prerequisiti
To take the Translational Cardiovascular Medicine and Surgery exam, students must have already passed all the exams of the first and second year (Fundamentals of Basic Sciences, Cells, Molecules and Genes 1 and 2, Human Body, Functions and Mechanisms of Diseases).
Furthermore students must review in detail the program of System Diseases 1, in particular the modules of Cardiovascular Diseases and Diagnostic Imaging, and the programs of Pharmacology 1 and 2.
Modalità di verifica dell’apprendimento e criteri di valutazione
Students' evaluation is assessed with three oral examinations focused on the topics developed during the course (one for Cardiovascular Diseases, one for Cardiac Surgery and one for Vascular Surgery). The final mark is the average of the marks obtained in the three oral examinations weighted for the number of credits of each discipline.
The exam is deemed to be passed successfully if the final grade is equal to or higher than 18/30. In the event of a full grade (30/30) honors (lode) may be granted with the consent of all the professors.
Registration to the exam through SIFA is mandatory.
