FOCUS - Figuring out the cardiac ultrasound

Have you ever asked yourself how does your heart do that “lub-dub” dance? Or which medical conditions can be diagnosed using echocardiography?

Whether you are a 4th year medical student looking to better understand your Cardiology rotation, or a 5th or 6th year student wanting to brush up on some notions while preparing for the Residency Exam, our new workshop is the perfect place for you!

Spread over 2 days, the workshop will cover multiple topics: On the first day you will learn the theoretical aspects of the cardiac ultrasound: sound waves, basic echocardiography skills, different views (subxiphoid, parasternal), the meaning of the long and short axis. In these 2 hours you’ll be able to gain everything you need in order to take the next step: clinical cases. 

On the second day, you will have the opportunity to practice what you learned for 4 hours, by solving 30 clinical cases. All kinds of cardiac pathologies that you can think of and ever more.
