Nuclear Cardiology (19 May 2017) National Training Day including 50 cases
Friday, 19 May 2017 from 09:00 to 17:00 (BST)
This course is designed for cardiology SpRs seeking efficient acquisition of experience in basic Nuclear Cardiology. It begins with expert didactic lectures covering the principles of nuclear cardiology from physics and biology to clinical practice and image interpretation.
The unique element of this course is the intense 50 scan evaluation session in the afternoon. During this you will answer questions to confirm your learning, and your responses will be scored. You will receive a certificate showing your score.
If you do not have local exposure to the scanning process, we encourage making an arrangement with one of the lecturers for one or two sessions of one-to-one experience of the scanning process.
Should I wait until I get study leave permission before booking?
There are limited places because this is an intensive course. Previous courses have become fully registered months in advance.
You can register now, safe in the knowledge that the registration can be refunded if your hospital refuses your request for time to attend the course. To obtain this you only need to email evidence of the refusal by 28 days after registering, or 56 days before the course, whichever is later.
Therefore it is wise to book now.
What should I bring?
We ask you to bring a smartphone or tablet with direct mobile (i.e. non-Wifi-dependent) internet connectivity so that your participation in the evaluation session can be marked quickly and certificates issued promptly. Please silence your phone ringers.
What does this course provide?
This course covers the most difficult scheduling challenge in basic study of Nuclear Cardiology, namely the 50 cases of reporting. After this, if you haven't previously obtained hands-on experience, you should arrange one or two subsequent one-to-one sessions with a Nuclear Cardiology trainer in your local region, or one of the course lecturers if you prefer, to observe scans being conducted in person.
How do I travel to the course?
The course is at Paddington which can be reached:
By Air, from London Heathrow (15 minutes by Heathrow Express)
By Train, using Paddington Station
By Underground, using Paddington or Edgware Road stations
