Module XVI-D: The Masters Review of Cardiovascular Medicine Breakthroughs is the fourth and final module within the Advanced Cardiology Certification. Fully revised to reflect the latest clinical updates and scientific research, this advanced module will feature Q&A discussions, recent literature reviews, protocol assessments, and treatment plan options. Designed to provide an in-depth and updated review of clinically valuable information, Module XVI-D will be organized into three main sections: cardiovascular updates in clinical medicine, clinical didactic presentations, and clinical case presentations. Led by a panel of some of the field’s most well-respected and renowned clinical experts, participants will complete the module with an actionable understanding surrounding a wide variety of clinically relevant topics including insulin resistance, dyslipidemia, obesity, coronary heart disease, inflammation and CVD, personalized CV medicine, and much more.
