About this course

We are unfortunatley unable to deliver this course as planned due to the ongoing pandemic and wider implications on the RVC.  We are currently rescheduling to 2022 and will advertise a new date as soon as we have one.  In the meantime please register your interest with us and we will contact you when the course is bookable.

Participants will build on echocardiographic skills developed in the Basic Echo course and improve their proficiency in 2D 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.
