Wessex Cardiology Trainees

SpR Training Day - Registration required - Adult Congenital Heart Disease - Thursday 7th November

 Dear All,

The next official training day is taking place at Southampton on 7th November, in the Heartbeat Education Centre, starting at 9am.

Access the programme here which looks excellent and features excellent speakers. The day is also open to the regional ACHD network, so registration is essential. Please email tara.bharucha@uhs.nhs.uk ASAP with your name, GMC number and any dietary requirements.

Please let me know if there is any specific reason why you are unable to attend. All of your seniors acknowledge the importance of these training days and whilst some clinical commitments are unavoidable, some situations can be resolved in advance.


Acute Cardiovascular Care Association ESC e-learning platform

Janine Pöss, member of the ESC Cardiologist of Tomorrow nucleus, is putting together a panel of trainees interested in editing the ACCA ESC e-learning platform.

The task would be to work together with senior authors and to reorganize the chapters written by experts into online modules. The "junior" contributors will appear as co-authors of the respective chapters.

This is a great opportunity to increase knowledge and to work together with leading experts in the field of acute cardiac care.

If you are interested, please let me know and I will pass on your details.
