We know learning the skill of ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY is time-consuming, expensive and an extra load on Senior Echocardiographers in your department.

Echo Ed workshops are designed with the sole purpose of FAST TRACKING a lot of the theory and practical skills that are taught in the first 3-4 months of training.  We spend many weeks with junior Echocardiographers doing bits and pieces of training when time permits.  The “Getting Started in Echo” workshop gives participants an enormous amount of information and practical training in less than a week, allowing them to return home to their labs with knowledge and a basic skill level to “hit the ground running!”

Many labs are also responsible for training Cardiology Fellows and Advanced Cardiac Trainees.  The intensive 4 DAY program is an ideal way for doctors to be immersed in Echo, and gain real skills to use at the bedside before they begin in the lab.  This workshop does not just give you a taste of Echo, it gives you real skills!

Echo Ed invites Cardiac Technicians, Echocardiographers, General sonographers, Medical fellows and Medical professionals to view the Echo Ed short courses available in 2019.  Echo Ed also welcomes medical professionals that require PRACTICAL SUPPORT in the field of Echo, while completing a formal Echo qualification.  Ruth Ramm has a structured way of obtaining and optimising Echo images…you can too!
