Event Details

**Please NOTE this edition of the course will be held in the main Institute of Child Health building at 30 Guilford St. **

Overview

This course is suitable for all those wishing to improve their knowledge about the anatomy of the heart and in particular congenital heart malformations. Knowledge will be built up from Day 1 (normal anatomy and simple lesions) to more complex topics on Day 2/3. It is suitable for a wide range of disciplines.

Aims & Objectives

The aim of this three day course is to allow for small group discussion, in an informal setting, of important groups of congenital lesions by both didactic lectures and hands-on examination of specimens.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, participants should be comfortable with the anatomy of the major groups of congenital heart lesions and be able to analyse hearts in a sequential segmental fashion.

Course Programme

  • Principle of sequential segmental analysis
  • Detailed normal anatomy
  • Septal defects (ASD, VSD, AVSD)
  • Outflow tract abnormalities: tetralogy of fallot, double outlet ventricle, transposition, arch abnormalities, 
  • Valvar abnormalities (Ebstein’s malformation, arterial valvar stenosis)
  • Complex lesions - Isomerism, Functionally univentricular hearts
  • Full programme on request

 Additional Information

** Spaces for each course are limited to 15 delegates to allow for more personal tuition, time for examination of specimens and discussion**

20% concession only for GOSH or UCL employees, Enter code: GOSH123 or UCL123

This course is run regularly throughout the year, so if the course you have requested is full please check for other dates, or else add your name to the waitlist.

For delegates with a very basic knowledge of cardiac anatomy it is recommended that you attend from Day 1. You may also find it useful to visit our website www.cardiacmorphology.com to preview the hands-on course videos.
