MD.  Larry Podolsky

I have been teaching "Basic Cardiology and Cardiac Dysrhythmias", on-line for 10 years, and every completed semester, I review and edit this course. This year is no exception.

  • What's new: More instructional videos and the addition of "Virtual Office Hours"
  • What is the same: The format and organization of the course. Please take a look at the "attached" Syllabus

One last thing: 

  • Just so you are aware, single lead and 12 lead ECG strip interpretation, make up 50% of what you will learn in the "Basic Cardiology" course.

General "Office Hours: >Call me with any questions, e-mail( or call me (home: 209-847-3944).

"Office Hours" in Canvas:> "Zoom"virtual office hours: TUES.2-3pm & THURS. 7-8pm

I was born in Chicago, moved to California in 1957 and to Oakdale in 1966. Went to Oakdale High School, MJC and then Fresno State and then spent the next 8 years going to medical school and specialty training at Northwestern University. Came back to Oakdale and set up a practice in OB/GYN that lasted until 2005 when I retired from medicine after 25 years. Always wanted to teach and through a friend got a “gig” with Columbia College.

I have been married to the same lady for 45 years and have 3 kids; Sara who is an RN in the Oak Valley Hospital ER: Dave who has his own software business in San Diego and Laura, who works for a non-profit organization in Sacramento.
