7th Annual Exam orientated Congenital Echocardiography Course

Course overview

This is a two-day intensive course, run as a joint initiative by the Royal Brompton Hospital and the PECSIG organisation, to help candidates planning to prepare for the EACVI European Congenital Echocardiography accreditation. 

This course will cover written theory MCQs and a large number of paediatric and adult congenital echocardiography images will be shown.  The first day will include a general introduction to the exam including advice on preparation of the required logbook. The second day will include a mock examination (candidates can mark their own papers if they wish as this is intended to be a learning opportunity and not a stressful event).
