These echo series will present you a large number of cases of congenital and acquired heart diseases. In both cases a problem-oriented approach will be used to guide you from your initial echo findings (phenotype) to the most common (and sometimes rare) differential diagnosis you should consider in your cases.

  • Join Jose Novo Matos DVM DipECVIM (Cardiology) MRCVS for three 2-hour online sessions
  • Comprehensive notes to downloaded
  • Self-assessment quizzes to ‘release’ your 8 hours CPD certification (don’t worry, you can take them more than once if you don’t quite hit the mark first time)
  • A whole year’s access to recorded sessions for reviewing key points
  • Superb value for money – learn without travelling
  • Watch the recordings on your iPad!

Course Feedback:

“I thought the information was structured and large numbers of echo videos.”

“Numerically feline HCM and canine DCM phenotype assessments are most significant in my work so those modules are incredibly useful. That said the advice on doppler in the congenital abnormality section will also be very useful, even if I don’t see that many cases.”

“This was really an amazing CPD course! Pathophysiology of conditions is very well explained, lectures are very well structured, from a practical point of view. One of the best cardiac ultrasound courses!”
