Analyzing the Accuracy of Cardiac Risk Calculators with Dr. Defilippis

Dr. Andrew Defilippis discusses his very practical research into the data behind cardiovascular risk scores. His findings on variations between different cohort studies have been published and debated the Annals of Internal Medicine this spring. As a set of tools we use daily in our outpatient primary care practice, a deeper dive into cardiovascular risk calculations fits our criteria for being both a Grand Rounds and Louisville Lectures talk. What is a Grand Rounds talk doing on Louisville Lectures? Find out about our growing offerings here.

This lecture is now available for CME credit, see below for details.


Dr. Defilippis is an Assistant Professor on faculty the University of Louisville's division of Cardiology. In addition to this, he is a researcher and is the clinical director for the University of Louisville's Cardiac ICU.
