Basics of Electrocardiography

The Basics of Electrocardiography Course is designed to provide learners with important information that is needed to interpret the most common ECG abnormalities. Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to describe anatomical and physiological features underlying normal cardiac activity; determine the cardiac axis; understand and recognize main cardiac arrhythmias, ST-segment and T-wave changes

  • The complete course lasts 5 weeks, with 2 lectures (4 hours) of contact time per week
  • The course is based on accredited medical school curricula
  • Entire Course: $500 (~ US $25 per lecture hour)
  • Rate per select 2-hour lecture: $55
  • Final Exam Only: $55
  • A certificate of completion is provided to all students who register and pay, complete the course, and pass the final exam
