DOI: 10.37421/2684-4591.2023.7.193

Cardiorenal multimorbidity, the coexistence of cardiovascular and renal diseases, is a significant clinical challenge with significant implications for patient outcomes. Understanding the prevalence, risk factors and clinical characteristics of cardiorenal multimorbidity is essential for improving the management and care of these patients. The Hellenic Cardio renal Morbidity Snapshot study aimed to provide a comprehensive evaluation of cardiorenal multimorbidity in hospitalized cardiology patients in Greece. This article discusses the objectives, methodology, key findings and implications of the HECMOS study.

Cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. While such as medications and procedures are vital in managing CVDs, lifestyle factors play a crucial role in their prevention and management. Lifestyle medicine focuses on using evidence-based lifestyle interventions, including nutrition, physical activity, stress management, sleep and tobacco cessation, to prevent, treat and even reverse chronic diseases. In cardiology, lifestyle medicine has gained recognition as a powerful tool to reduce the burden of CVDs and improve patient outcomes. This article explores the relationship between cardiology and lifestyle medicine, highlighting the role of lifestyle interventions in preventing and managing CVDs.

Academic Pediatric Cardiology Training Programs

Sowmya Balasubramanian*

DOI: 10.37421/2684-4591.2023.7.197

Diversity and inclusion are critical in shaping a vibrant and equitable academic environment and academic pediatric cardiology training programs are no exception. The representation of women and minority faculty and fellows in these programs is essential for promoting a diverse and culturally competent workforce that can address the complex healthcare needs of all patients. This article explores the current state of representation and the importance of fostering diversity in academic pediatric cardiology training programs, while also discussing strategies to enhance inclusivity. Despite progress in recent years, women and underrepresented minorities remain underrepresented in academic pediatric cardiology training programs.

DOI: 10.37421/2684-4591.2023.7.199

Interventional cardiology is a rapidly evolving field that encompasses both diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. With advancements in imaging technology, cardiac computed tomography has emerged as a valuable tool for evaluating cardiovascular disease. Incorporating cardiac CT training into interventional cardiology fellowships can provide fellows with a comprehensive skill set and enhance their ability to provide optimal patient care. This article explores the potential benefits of reconstructing interventional cardiology fellowships to include cardiac CT training and discusses the challenges and opportunities associated with this integration.

Perceptions of the Work Environment in Cardiology can Influence Medical Students

Costas Tsioufis*

DOI: 10.37421/2684-4591.2023.7.200

Several studies have found that male medical students tend to show a greater interest in pursuing a career in cardiology compared to their female counterparts. This gender disparity in interest has been observed in multiple countries and across different stages of medical education. One factor influencing career choices is the perceived lifestyle associated with a particular specialty. Research suggests that female medical students may prioritize work-life balance and lifestyle factors more than male students. As a result, they may be less inclined to choose cardiology, which is often perceived as demanding and requiring long hours. As a result, they may be less inclined to choose cardiology as a career path. The presence of mentors and role models within a specialty plays a crucial role in shaping career choices.
