Practicing cardiologists with significant echocardiography experience frequently request clinical echo updates or fast-paced review sessions from the Texas Medical Center “experts.” Additionally, adult and pediatric cardiology and cardiovascular anesthesiology fellows in training annually request local review sessions before the National Board of Echocardiography (NBE) examinations from area experts. In response to these needs, experts at Texas Heart Institute and the Greater Society of Echocardiography have organized a three-day intensive review course to fill this educational gap. The course will help to prepare attendees in a cost-effective manner to identify areas of weakness prior to self-study or a more intensive review course prior to the NBE examinations (echoboards.org) The course is also intended to serve as a clinically oriented update and review for practicing cardiologists.
