Online learning

We have a wide range of online learning opportunities that are available to our members.

Journal-based learning

The British Society of Echocardigoraphy's open-access journal, Echo Research and Practice, is part of a free journal-based learning programme on echocardiography.

Journal-based learning supports the education of clinicians-in-training and enables senior healthcare professionals to keep up to date with the latest knowledge in their specialty.

Other online learning opportunities

Our distance learning modules are currently suspended following our move to the new website. We are working on a new and improved e-learning solution which we hope to bring to you in the future.

If you have made payment for the Pulmonary Hypertension module only and did not have the opportunity to complete this prior to removal, please email [email protected] to receive a refund. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Our e-learning programme is currently under review as we develop more online training opportunities for our members. In the meantime, you can explore the wide range of other online learning opportunities that are available, including:
