Description

The fellowship is offered to a small, selected group, to enhance the interaction.
It is designed for general radiologists reporting emergency cases or wishing to embark on a subspecialization path. While the program will be adjusted as much as possible to meet the participants’ expectations and needs (including selection of lectures), the mentor will endeavour to encompass a broad spectrum of non-traumatic emergencies of the adult patient.

Selected topics will first be presented in a lecture format, followed by representative cases of various difficulty levels, including typical presentations, false positives, false negatives etc. The fellows will review the images, first by themselves and then together with the mentor and the group. The aim is to reproduce the reading room experience, simulating and condensing full length emergency radiology fellowship programs.

Torre Mapfre

Designed by Íñigo Ortíz and Enrique de León on the occasion of the Olympics in 1992, Torre Mapfre is one of the most iconic buildings in Barcelona, due to its height -154 meters (505ft) height, distributed in 44 floors, as well as its unique location by the sea at Vila Olímpica.

The fellowship will be held on the 33rd floor where the TMC offices are located, complete with a gorgeous view of the entire city.

In terms of safety in relation to COVID-19, we will follow any restrictions and recommendations as provided by the Spanish government and the Torre Mapfre management at the time of the fellowship. We will evaluate the situation and inform participants of current rules and recommendations that we feel are best for the safety and comfort of the group.
