CardioNerds (Amit Goyal & Daniel Ambinder) join Cleveland Clinic cardiology fellows (Ben Alencherry, Erika Hutt, Zach Il’Giovine, Kara Denby) for some delicious craft beer at Platform Brewery! They discuss a challenging case of Ehlers Danlos Syndrome with Papillary Muscle Rupture. Dr. Vidyasagar Kalahasti provides the E-CPR and program director Dr. Venu Menon provides a message for applicants. Episode notes were developed by Johns Hopkins internal medicine resident, Eunice Dugan, with mentorship from University of Maryland cardiology fellow Karan Desai.
The CardioNerds Cardiology Case Reports series shines light on the hidden curriculum of medical storytelling. We learn together while discussing fascinating cases in this fun, engaging, and educational format. Each episode ends with an “Expert CardioNerd Perspectives & Review” (E-CPR) for a nuanced teaching from a content expert. We truly believe that hearing about a patient is the singular theme that unifies everyone at every level, from the student to the professor emeritus.
We are teaming up with the ACC FIT Section to use the #CNCR episodes to showcase CV education across the country in the era of virtual recruitment. As part of the recruitment series, each episode features fellows from a given program discussing and teaching about an interesting case as well as sharing what makes their hearts flutter about their fellowship training. The case discussion is followed by both an E-CPR segment and a message from the program director.
