Next Boot Camp: Savannah, Georgia!
September 30 - October 3, 2019
Due to rising political tensions in the Middle East,
I am postponing the class in Doha, Qatar indefinitely.
Two Great Choices for the
2019 Advanced ECG Interpretation Boot Camp!
There will be a maximum of 20 participants in this class and, because of the beautiful location, we expect it to fill soon.
Learn advanced ECG interpretation from an internationally-known authority and also take in a bit of our Southern charm, culture and cuisine!
Learn to recognize subtle signs of acute ischemia, distinguish wide complex tachycardias and so much more!
October 28 - 31, 2019
Come join us in the Eternal City - Rome! Attend the most unique ECG learning experience in the world and then enjoy the sights, sounds, culture and cuisine that is Rome!
Class size is limited to just 20 participants and registration is open world-wide so don't wait too long to enroll! Take advantage of small class sizes and the ability to ask questions of an internationally recognized expert.
Just a reminder that our classes ("boot camps") are very small - only 10 to 20 participants. Don't wait until the last minute to enroll because you may miss a great opportunity!
We do offer tuition discounts for groups of 3 - 5 participants and even greater discounts for groups of 6 or more participants. For groups or organizations that want a private, 4-day boot camp please call Jerry W. Jones, MD at 001-713-931-5423 to learn how to obtain "buy-out" pricing!

To the Heads of All Emergency Medicine, Hospitalist, Family Practice, Internal Medicine and Anesthesiology Groups...
Consider how skillful your staff are at interpreting 12-lead ECGs. The ECG is one of (if not THE) most ordered tests in the US healthcare system. Also consider that most physicians never had any formal classes in the interpretation of this complicated test. I didn’t receive any training as a medical student nor when I was a resident and it’s still pretty much the same today. Residents often attend one-hour presentations of exceptional ECGs during their residency training but, quite frankly, most of these presentations are well-beyond their ECG interpretation skills. Consider that many physicians are relying on very inaccurate and undependable machine interpretations or waiting hours to days for an over-read by a cardiologist or cardiology fellow. Consider the medicolegal consequences of someone attempting to read a very complicated ECG with only an introductory-level skill. Also consider that the physician or licensed advanced practitioner in whose name the ECG is ordered is responsible for interpreting the ECG at the time it is done. If anything should happen to a patient while waiting for an expert interpretation, the ordering practitioner may be held responsible for not interpreting that ECG him- or herself in a timely manner.
Physicians, including cardiologists, travel to Houston, TX from all over the world to study advanced ECG interpretation with me. I have presented my Advanced ECG Interpretation Boot Camp in Budapest, London, Toronto, Vancouver and Sydney, Australia. Contact me to arrange a private class for your group.

The Advanced Dysrhythmia Boot Camp is currently being completely redesigned and rewritten. It will be a three-day course and will be open for enrollment in the late spring/early summer of 2020.
This class will be strictly limited to just 20 participants and it is anticipated that it will be presented two or three times per year.
There will be no other course offered like it anywhere in the world!
Be assured that when we at Medicus of Houston label a curriculum as "advanced" it is truly advanced. Most "advanced" courses offered via the internet - whether live or on-line - are not actually advanced! Instead, they just rehash the same basic material found in all the beginners' textbooks.
In the rhythm strip above, there is group beating. This always suggests a Mobitz I AV block, though other dysrhythmias can also cause group beating. This is, however, a true Mobitz I AV block. That alone is NOT an advanced concept. But can you tell me which P wave failed to conduct?
Go to the Contact Us page of this website and send me your thoughts. Don't just guess! Tell me which P wave failed to conduct and why you think it is that particular P wave. I will send you the answer and the reasoning behind it. Although this is a very advanced rhythm strip, it is included in the Advanced ECG Interpretation Boot Camp as well as the Advanced Dysrhythmia Boot Camp. Then decide if you could use some advanced training!
