The effect of a multimodality cardiac imaging elective on pre-clinical medical students
The Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center School of Medicine has developed an immersive Cardiac Imaging and Innovation week for medical students during their preclinical year. A pre- and post-survey administered to participants showed increased knowledge and improved impressions of cardiology. The students ranked the experience as high quality. This project suggests that similar elective experiences could enhance education during the preclinical period of medical education.
