Clinical Cardiology provides a forum for the coordination of clinical research in cardiology and cardiovascular surgery. The journal includes editorials, articles in brief, reviews, clinical investigations, short communications, letters to the editor, and calendar of continuing medical education. Editorial sections include Electrophysiology, Pacing and Arrhythmia, Progress in Clinical Trials, Profiles in Cardiology, Computers in Cardiology, Editor's Note, and Images in Cardiology.
The Foundation for Advances in Medicine and Science, Inc. (FAMS) is a non-profit educational Foundation established in 1983. Its mission is to advance medicine and science worldwide via the exchange of knowledge and information. FAMS accomplishes this mission by sponsoring conferences, holding educational seminars and publishing medical and scientific journals.
Some of FAMS activities include:
CLINICAL CARDIOLOGY, A Journal for Advances in Cardiovascular Disease, is a peer-reviewed monthly publication containing articles on scientific findings and clinical practice. Specific clinical subjects such as cardiac surgery, interventional techniques, pathology, pharmacology, biochemistry, and rehabilitation are discussed. CLINICAL CARDIOLOGY is distributed to more than 35,000 physicians in the United States. CLINICAL CARDIOLOGY International Edition, is distributed quarterly to 12,000 cardiologists in the European Union.
FAMS is concerned that existing educational materials on cardiovascular disease and patient care are designed primarily for patients/caregivers who are highly literate and speak English fluently. Cardiovascular disease, however, is more common among the poor and illiterate. Therefore, the effectiveness of these materials needs improvement. The Foundation is analyzing the readability of cardiovascular reading materials in order to develop literacy guidelines for use in the preparation of new materials for patients of all education levels and ethnic backgrounds.
Leading members of the medical profession have asked for courses in the application of scanning microscopy technology to various categories of clinical practice, such as oncology, heart disease, organ transplant, neurology, surgery, and other disease entities. To provide this bridge between the microscopies and the treatment of human disease, FAMS will sponsor accredited continuing medical education courses.
