Medicine Interns spend a month at the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, one of our partner hospitals in the Harvard system. The BIDMC Zoll service is the cardiology inpatient service that provides clinical care to patients with acute coronary syndromes, decompensated heart failure, and a variety of cardiac arrhythmias. Formal didactic teaching rounds take place four times a week to discuss both current cases and didactics of the groups choosing; emphasis is placed on review of primary data obtained through stress, echo, and catheterization. With a particular focus on interventional cardiology, the rotation provides a nice complement to community hospital training at Cambridge Health Alliance.
At BIDMC, Cambridge interns join two interns on a team with a resident, cardiac fellow, and staff cardiologist. There are no overnight calls.
