Seeking medical students interested in clinical cardiology research. This work involves helping to build a database of individuals with atrial fibrillation and sleep apnea. This work can be done remotely and participation in the project would provide access to weekly check ins and development of individual research projects and questions. This is an excellent opportunity to explore important clinical questions in cardiac electrophysiology. Students would participate on a part-time basis and could start immediately. Please contact Patricia Tung at ptung@bidmc.harvard.edu for more information.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
