About this course

We plan to run this course on Wednesday 17th November 2021. The RVC is committed to providing a safe learning environment for all our students so we may be required to make changes to course provision depending on the COVD-19 situation in the coming year. We will therefore not require payment until we are confident the course can go ahead. Please register your interest in attending by emailing cpd@rvc.ac.uk

You’ve attended the Basic echocardiography course and you’re ready to move on? You can get the views but are unsure how to make accurate measurements? Would you like to know more about Doppler echocardiography?

Participants will build on echocardiographic skills developed in the Basic echocardiography course and improve their proficiency in 2D and M-mode echocardiography, focusing on quantification and lesion recognition. A grounding will also be provided in Doppler echocardiography, but with a focus on integrating all aspects of the echocardiography exam. Some prior experience will be assumed.

Why do this course?
If you have been practising echo on your own and want to polish up your technique, or if you want to learn more about Doppler echocardiography, then this is the course for you.
