Program Description


The diagnosis and initial treatment of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) is a complex challenge for clinicians given the variety of patient presentations and the urgency of needed care. Comorbidities and special population considerations also play a significant role. The challenge for clinicians is to rapidly identify ACS patients who require urgent management, and to then promptly initiate an individualized treatment strategy that complies with current treatment guidelines. It is equally important to embark, at an early stage, on a long-term treatment strategy that complies with current guidelines while meeting the needs of specific patients to ensure optimum clinical outcomes. It is critical to identify institutional practice-specific lapses and inefficiencies that jeopardize clinical outcomes of hospitalized ACS patients and increase the risk of recurrent events. Targeted to cardiology fellows, Acute Coronary Syndrome aims to provide exposure and training that will increase physicians' knowledge, competence, and confidence when presented with an ACS emergency.
