This three-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.

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.

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

EBAC 18CME and 18 CPD credits

To allow for an optimal tutor attendee ratio at the practical sessions, we have to limit the number of participants for the full course. Register early to avoid disappointment.
