Course Description

Echocardiography is a multimodality imaging technique with diverse individual techniques, showing established clinical value and promise in research. The full spectrum of echocardiography involves 2D, Doppler, transesophageal, exercise, and dobutamine stress echocardiograms and contrast echocardiograms. Although few specialists actually perform echocardiography, most have to order or interpret them at some stage. 

The primary objective of this session is not only to explain how to carry out echocardiography but also to emphasize its potential, application, and limitations. Comprehensive knowledge and skills in the field of echocardiography play a significant role in clinical decision making and diagnosis of various cardiovascular conditions. Adequate knowledge about echocardiography, its application, and interpretation aids in providing required care in cardiology units and ICUs.

Fellowship course in 2D echocardiography: II Edition is designed to provide necessary knowledge in the basic echocardiography principles, modes, application in various cardiovascular conditions, limitations, and potential. The course comprises of: 

  • Video-based learning strategy and easy-to-learn illustrations for effective learning and reading material
  • Virtual learning from simulation modules by Simtics, New Zealand
  • Live Echo demonstrations and hands-on training as a part of the contact program

Eligibility: Physicians (MBBS, MD, and DNB), Cardiology, general medicine, radiology residents, and residents working in cardiology and intensive care units.

Course Validity: 7 months. There will be an extra charge on the extension of the course validity.
