About the Workshop

Designed to FAST TRACK Trainee Echocardiographers during the first 3 months of training and take the pressure off Senior Echocardiographers. The “Getting Started in Echo” online course gives participants an enormous amount of information and practical tips.

This program includes 8 MODULES and many unique interactive activities – over 40 case studies of cardiac pathology, quizzes to test your understanding, Build a 3D Heart Model and the ECHO ED Transducer Simulator (EETS) to help you gain practical skills.  The 5 Part Practical Video series will show you the “Tricks of the Trade” and assist you in obtaining and optimising cardiac images. These are some of the tricks that I focus on during the early stages of training and are seldom found in the textbook. The comprehensive “Standard Echo Images” module is very specific in examining cardiac structure and function from all echo windows.

Registration includes access to the ECHO ED “Getting Started in Echo” online course for 16 WEEKS.  Registration also includes a complementary video showing you HOW to work your ultrasound machine. Just let us know what system you are wanting to use! Contact ECHO ED via the contact page.

Many labs are also responsible for training Cardiology Fellows and Advanced Cardiac Trainees.  This online program is an ideal way for doctors to be immersed in Echo, and gain a great foundation in 2D echo and practical tips to use at the bedside.  Highly recommended for Trainee Echocardiographers (Adult & Paediatric), Critical Care Specialists and Medical students – start your echo placement with confidence.

Ruth Ramm has a structured way of obtaining and optimising Echo images…you can too!

After successfully completing the online course, you are invited to book a one-on-one 90 minute LIVE practical session ($295 inc GST) with a Senior Echocardiographer, where you will receive personal guidance and feedback while scanning a normal patient*. This will give you more confidence when scanning. Contact the ECHO ED team via the contact page on this website to book an online LIVE practical session.

Learn at your own pace. Learn in your own environment. Learn the skill of 2D Transthoracic ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY.

*Participants are to organise the use of their own cardiac ultrasound machine, model normal patient with reasonable echo windows for learning, and fixed internet access for the practical online tuition session. Echo Ed uses Zoom to connect with clients.  **Contact Echo Ed directly to book a LIVE online practical session.
