We are happy to announce our first two day Cardiology Conference 2024 on 27-28 June 2024. It will focus on ECG Interpretation (Day 1: more details can be viewed here) and Cardiac Imaging (Day 2). You are welcome to attend either one of the days or the two-day event. 


Why join the course?

Modern, advanced imaging techniques have allowed increasingly more rigorous assessment of individuals with cardiomyopathies. Correct interpretation is key in the differential diagnosis with structural changes that reflect physiological cardiac adaptation to exercise. This practical course, namely Cardiac Imaging in Cardiomyopathies and Athlete's heart, delivered by experts in the field of cardiac imaging, cardiomyopathies and sports cardiology, aims to provide participants with the knowledge and skills to recognize different cardiomyopathy phenotypes and to differentiate findings suggestive of potentially lethal cardiovascular disorders from normal variants. The course is highly interactive. Lectures will be complemented with small group, case-based workshops and hand-on experience. 


This course is for anyone who wishes to achieve a competency in cardiac imaging in cardiomyopathies and in athletes. The course is best suited for Consultants, Junior Doctors, Sport physicians, Sonographers, Physiologists, Physician assistants, Specialist Nurses.

Course description

The course comprises of 3 sessions offered over 1 day. Lectures alternate with case-based learning (small groups teaching). The attendees are encouraged to participate to the live lectures, but they would be able to access the recordings for up to 4 weeks from the end of the live course. The course is highly interactive through Q&A sessions, small groups teaching and case-based learning. 

After this course, participants will be able to: 

  1. Recognize imaging features of cardiomyopathies 
  2. Differentiate features of athletic adaptation from those suggestive of cardiomyopathy 
  3. Plan a diagnostic work-up for individuals with possible cardiomyopathy 

The course is hosted at SGUL and delivered in a hybrid format. The platform Microsoft Teams will be used for attendees who are not able to participate in person. The attendees will be able to interact with the speakers and ask questions, raise comments, and respond to MCQs.  Attendees will be asked to complete online assignment (MCQs) between sessions and feedback will be provided. This is for the participants’ own learning and not a fail/pass process.

Delegates will be issued with a certificate of attendance and CPD will be sought from the Royal College of Physicians and British Society of Echocardiography of the United Kingdom. 

Past students have said...

“The timetable was very good, and all lectures met their objectives, sessions all to the point and very interesting.”

“Learning from experts in the field with good working examples. Interactive cases.”
