This course will advance your knowledge of interpreting state-of-the-art electrocardiograms.


This course will provide a series of multiple-choice questions based on 12-lead electrocardiograms as encountered in inpatient and outpatient-based settings. The emphasis will be on common and potentially life-threatening clinical entities including acute coronary syndromes, major cardiac arrhythmias, and metabolic problems affecting the ECG as well as other conditions such as drug toxicities.

These cases will feature multimedia adjuncts including echocardiograms and cardiac catheterization images to engage the participant and to enhance the clinical correlates. Emphasis will be on differential diagnosis and avoiding common clinical pitfalls. The faculty for the course is from the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.


Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Review common and life-threatening clinical conditions which can be diagnosed via ECG findings as encountered in the emergency department, general wards, intensive care units, and outpatient settings
  • Practice case-based clinical problem-solving using multiple-choice questions
  • Identify a variety of acute and chronic conditions



This course is directed at physicians and allied health personnel from a wide range of disciplines including emergency medicine physicians, internists, family practice physicians, anesthesiologists, and cardiologists. Participants will have the chance to review and advance their knowledge of state-of-the-art ECG interpretations by taking this course.
