Online IR(ME)R

Dear All,

Please see below for a link to an online resource, which those in the early stages of training may find useful. I am assured that this is all that is required to prove IR(ME)R certification at ARCP.



The e-LFH is an excellent resource, which can link straight into the e-portfolio and has a lot of modules in generic skills - well worth exploring to buff-up the portfolio...

BHVS TAVI Meeting

Hi All,

Benoy Shah has forwarded me details of this day on imaging in TAVI, to be held at King's College Hospital on 1st July. The flyer is attached here. It says that the cost is £100.00 but I am informed that it is now, in fact, free to attend. The details can be found on the BHVS website.

ACHD

Dear All,

The Southampton ACHD team are very excited to invite you to the next Southampton Congenital Cardiac Study Day on July 7th, which is part of their rolling two year curriculum.

The topic this time is Tetralogy of Fallot, and they will be covering everything you need to know, including morphology, imaging and longterm follow up.  There will be plenty of opportunity for interaction and discussion and presentation of clinical cases, with a live MDT. The programme is here.

This teaching day will be of interest to cardiologists and cardiology trainees, paediatricians with an interest in cardiology, congenital cardiology trainees, cardiac physiologists, nurses and GPs with special interest in cardiology.

Hot lunch will be provided.

The programme is attached.  To register, please e-mail bashir.alaour@uhs.nhs.uk, with the attached registration form.

Also, for those that feel their boat being floated by all of this, there are exciting opportunities for sub-speciality training available at Southampton. Both the Fellow post and the sub-speciality training post will be available from July this year. Informal enquiries can be made by e-mailing samantha.fitzsimmons@uhs.nhs.uk

Training Days

Dear All,

Good to see many of you at BCS - I hope that those who couldn't make it didn't suffer too much from their colleagues being away.

I have received word that the ever popular Devices training day at Portsmouth is to run on the 22nd September 2016 so please book the study leave ASAP. For those who have not attended before, it is a great opportunity to have some time on the programmers and get to grips with troubleshooting pacemakers and complex devices. It usually runs at the Marriott Hotel near QAH and the food is plentiful and excellent...

Formal programme to follow.
