Task Force 2: Training in Electrocardiography, Ambulatory Electrocardiography, and Exercise Testing

Fellows interpret ECG and Holter monitor recordings during the VAMC outpatient and inpatient rotations. Fellows interpret Holter monitor recordings during the UIHC electrophysiology rotation. Fellows interpret ECG and stress tests on the UIHC Nuclear Cardiology rotation and UIHC stress echocardiography laboratory rotation. Fellows directly supervise exercise stress tests during the VA Outpatient rotation and jointly supervise exercise stress tests at UIHC. These studies are then reviewed by the attending cardiologist. In addition, a four-week course in basic ECG interpretation is conducted at the beginning of the training period and an ECG conference is held weekly at the UIHC.
