The adjunct to clinical assessment. Develop the skills to solidify your diagnosis and to start scanning immediately. A one day teaching course with 4 month assessment.

For the ECHO beginner.

The course consists of a teaching day on December 15th and an assessment morning on April 10th 2018. This assessment will only take an hour but you must attend in order to get a certificate. Details of the assessment will be sent out after you have signed up.

It involves an interactive lecture based morning followed by two hands on practical sessions in the afternoon.

You will be able to distinguish abnormalities of the left ventricle, right ventricle, mitral valve, aortic valve, tricuspid valve, aorta, pericardial space, IVC, lung interstitium and pleural space.
