Next course 19-20 June 2017, Norton House Hotel, Edinburgh - booking now

The 2017 course will feature Fletcher Miller (recent Director of the Cardiovascular Ultrasound and Haemodynamic Laboratory, Mayo Clinic, Rochester) and Heidi Connolly (Director of the Congenital Centre and Education Chair, Division of Cardiovascular Diseases, Mayo Clinic, Rochester) along with high profile UK speakers. 2016 was our busiest year so far and the feedback from delegates has been superb. We expect to be oversubscribed again in 2017 so book early to be guaranteed of getting a place.


The programme changes every year – we use a clinical case based format where possible with a large number of video demonstrations and interactive workshop sessions. We have an interactive audience voting system which is hugely popular with our delegates.


This meeting will be held in the excellent Norton House Hotel which is only 5 minutes away from Edinburgh Airport and is easily accessible by road and rail links. Free car parking is provided and a discounted accommodation code has been negotiated if rooms are booked beforehand.


Advanced Echocardiography is aimed at cardiologists, cardiac physiologists, and intensive care practitioners with an interest in non-invasive cardiac assessment. The course director is Stephen Glen, Consultant Cardiologist and the administrator is Joanne Cusack, Head of Cardiac Investigations at Forth Valley Royal Hospital.


The Federation of the Royal College of Physicians of the United Kingdom has approved this event for 12 category 1 (external) CPD credits (approval code 111654). British Society of Echocardiography accreditation points are awaited - in previous years we have been allocated 6 accreditation points. The course cost is £295 including dinner. A discounted hotel accommodation rate is available with Norton House hotel and there are several other hotels close to the conference venue with a range of accommodation options available including a Travelodge and Premier Inn within 5 minutes of Norton House.
