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 workshop gives participants an enormous amount of information and practical tips in less than 4 hours of online learning. This program includes many unique interactive activities, over 30 case studies, quizzes to test your understanding, Build a 3D Heart Model and the Echo Ed Transducer Simulator (EETS) to help you gain practical skills. The comprehensive “Standard Echo Images” module is very specific in examining cardiac structure and function from all echo windows.

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

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. 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.

Highly recommended for Cardiology Fellows (adult & paediatric) and Advanced Cardiac Trainees – start your echo placement with confidence.

Learn valuable 2D skills and practical tips in this <4 hour online workshop developed and delivered by Ruth Ramm.

The FULL PACKAGE includes a one-on-one online practical tuition 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 in an online practical session. Most time can be accommodated.

Workshops are suitable for Cardiac Technicians, Trainee Echocardiographers, Cardiac Fellows (Adult & Paediatric) and Medical Professionals wanting a great start to their Echocardiography Training.
