BSE Exam Preparation Course

A two  day preparation course immediately prior to the transthoracic accreditation examination.

The faculty includes experienced BSE examiners.

The first day consists of a series of short masterclasses on the common and difficult topics in the BSE syllabus.

The second day is centred around two complete mock examinations, including video cases.  There is sufficient time for discussion of each question and most of the BSE syllabus will be covered in this format.

We will discuss relevant exam technique in addition to the exploring the BSE examination structure in detail.

A complete exam will be given to participants on the second day. Three further complete practice exams are available to the Day 2 participants to do at home in the run up to the exam.

Foundation Echocardiography

This course is intended for physiologists and physicians who are starting out in echocardiography.  No previous experience of echocardiography is assumed, however some previous scanning experience would be helpful.

The morning lecture course will cover the basics of cardiac anatomy and physics. The normal echocardiographic examination will be covered in detail before discussing echocardiographic findings in acquired heart disease and simple congenital heart disease. The applications of 2D, colour and spectral Doppler will be explored.

The afternoons are devoted to small group (5 participants maximum) practical scanning sessions with an expert echocardiographer assigned to each group.  Experience of scanning both normal volunteers and patients will be available.

Venue: Moat House Hotel, Stoke on Trent

Duration: 3 Days
