Brompton cardiac morphology 



Hands-on cardiac morphology course.
8, 9 and 10 June 2016. Summer edition



8, 9 and 10 June 2016.


National Heart & Lung Institute, London, UK. 


Prof S Yen Ho




This is the original hands-on cardiac morphology course in  London and has been running successfully now for 23 years.


The course programme is endorsed by:


  • The British Cardiovascular Society 
    (This links to the Cardiology Curriculum: 3.1 Advanced Adolescent  and Adult Congenital Heart Disease, 3.5 Interventional Cardiology,  3.10 Advanced Transthoracic Echocardiography).


  • The ESC WG Developmental Anatomy and Pathology.




The 3-day course takes registrants from the basics of normal hearts and simple congenital malformations, through to the more complex defects and the conduction system, with live video demonstrations. The “hands-on” component (practicals) allows registrants to examine specimens under the guidance of tutors. Only pathological cardiac specimens are examined during this course.


This unique course is recommended for all professionals who manage and treat patients with congenital heart disease. It allows participants to appreciate the arrangement of the malformations in 3-dimensions.
Trainees in paediatric cardiology, intensive care, neonatology, cardiac surgery and cardiac health care professionals.


Our highly experienced team of tutors includes surgeons, pediatric cardiologists and pathologists who will provide guidance tailored to the needs of the participant.
