Description

The fellowship is aimed at Emergency radiologists, physicians or neurologists aiming for competency in the diagnosis of stroke or neuroradiologist wanting to refresh/ update their knowledge in the area of acute stroke.

This Online fellowship includes an overview of stroke, the history of the development of our present knowledge in this area, the CT and MRI parameters and findings that will allow proper imaging and confident diagnosis in this area.

In addition to two lectures covering some theoretical aspects, most of the fellowship will be in the form of case demos starting with a 15 min presentation, followed by anonymised real radiological cases where the candidate will be challenged for a diagnosis and followed by a group discussion of the cases.

TMC Academy fellowships are held in a virtual classroom environment on Zoom. Participants are encouraged to engage in discussions making use of their camera and microphone in order to recreate the face-to-face experience.

In this small group environment among your peers, you are free to ask questions, make mistakes, and learn together with the support of the radiologist mentor.

This fellowship is a CME-accredited activity organised by TMC Academy, an EACCME Trusted Provider.
