Clinical Echocardiography Lecture Series

 


Overview

The Clinical Echocardiography Lecture Series, coordinated by the Cardiology Section at Texas Heart Institute and St. Luke’s Episcopal Hospital, is presented live twice monthly for fellows-in-training, residents, and all attending physicians of the Texas Heart Institute Professional Staff. The online CME courses have been developed from the live lectures. 

The series is designed to address relevant patient care issues in the basic areas of cardiovascular medicine. Invited speakers examine current cardiovascular advancements, investigative efforts, and practice challenges. Each lecture is designed to increase physicians’ medical knowledge and skills, and ultimately, improve patient care.
