Essential Cardiac Auscultation

Overview
The Problem:
The most frequent request after a cardiac auscultation learning session is for a single disc or tape that will teach the most important findings in an effective format.
The Solution:
ESSENTIAL CARDIAC AUSCULTATION - a web-based program that will teach you the most important findings (The "Big 12") & their associated pathophysiology. The "Big 12" were chosen from national surveys of Program Directors and are emphasized by Certification Boards. They are presented using Harvey, The Cardiopulmonary Patient Simulator, a proven system used to teach bedside skills at medical centers worldwide.
Developed at:
The University of Miami Gordon Center for Research in Medical Education by cardiologists & educators from 10 medical centers. Reviewed & critiqued by over 1000 learners prior to release.

Acute Stroke

Overview
Why We Created ACUTE STROKE:
Over 700,000 people in the U.S. suffer a stroke each year, many resulting in death or significant disability. Rapid diagnosis and emergency management can significantly improve outcomes. In addition, appropriate inpatient care and secondary prevention strategies also decrease morbidity and mortality.
Developed at:
The University of Miami Gordon Center for Research in Medical Education by neurologists and educators from multiple medical centers and critiqued by hundreds of learners prior to its release.
Acute Stroke is ideal for neurology clerkships and healthcare professionals involved in or preparing for primary stroke center certification, as well as:
   - Emergency and intensive care personne
   - Nursing students and nurses
   - Physicians in training and practice
