Exercise stress test training in family practice residency programs

J Am Board Fam Pract. May-Jun 1993;6(3):289-91.


EST is a commonly indicated procedure in primary care medicine and as such is well suited for use by family physicians. At present there are few family physicians performing this procedure in their offices. Our survey of US family practice residency directors has shown an interest well above what would be expected for the level of current practice in the community; however, there remains an ambivalence on the need to provide EST training in the curriculum.
