This practical course, 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.

The course is highly interactive through Q&A sessions, small groups teaching and case-based learning.

The course is hosted on a Microsoft Teams digital platform – the attendees will be able to interact with the speakers and ask questions, raise comments and respond to MCQs.

The course comprises of 3 sessions (3 hours each) offered over 3 days. 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. A certificate of attendance from St George’s University will be issued at the end of the course.

CPD has been sought by the Royal College of Physicians and a certificate of attendance will be sent on completion.

Learning objectives

After this course, participants will be able to:

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

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.
