2020 course postponed during Covid outbreak, next course to be confirmed, likely June 2022.
A joint course with the British Society of Echocardiography, the Scottish Cardiac Society, and the Society for Cardiological Science and Technology
Norton House, Edinburgh
This course is our 15th so we have invited some company! We're having a joint meeting with speakers from the BSE, the SCS and the SCST along with our regular speakers and Mayo Clinic faculty.
The programme changes every year - we use a clinical case based format where possible with a large number of video demonstrations and interactive workshop sessions. We have an interactive audience voting system which is hugely popular with our delegates.
The meeting is held in the excellent Norton House Hotel which is only 5 minutes away from Edinburgh Airport and is easily accessible by road and rail links. Free car parking is provided and a discounted accomodation code is available if rooms are booked beforehand.
Advanced Echo is aimed at cardiologists, cardiac physiologists and intensive care practitioners with an interest in non-invasive cardiac assessment. The course director is Stephen Glen, Consultant Cardiologist and the administrator is Joanne Cusack, Head of Cardiac Investigations at Forth Valley Royal Hospital.
The federation of the Royal College of Physicians of the United Kingdom approved the 2019 event for 12 category 1 (external) CPD credits. The British Society of Echocardiography has confirmed 10 reaccreditation points for the 15th joint meeting.
The course cost is £295 including dinner. Several other hotel options are available nearby with a range of accomodation choices including a Travelodge and Premier Inn within 5 minutes of Norton House.
