1st European Transoesophageal Echocardiography Course on Congenital Heart Disease
This is the world’s first dedicated course on transoesophageal echocardiography (TOE) in congenital heart disease providing the participant with the essential theoretical basics, morphological aspects of common lesions in congenital heart disease as well as practical aspects of TOE in children and adults with congenital heart disease.
The two-day course will provide hands-on TOE simulator experience with particular focus on congenital lesions frequently encountered in clinical practice. All practical sessions will be directly supervised by experienced TOE operators in this field.
Live TOE sessions will be directly video-linked from Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children in London and participants will have opportunities to discuss individual cases.
PLEASE NOTE: this course is now fully booked; if you wish to have your name added to the Waiting List, please send your contact details to email@example.com.
This course is accredited by the European Board for Accreditation in Cardiology for 12 CME credit hour(s).
