Description

This 5-day fellowship in Barcelona, by Prof. Pierre-Yves Brillet and Dr Fredrik Ahlfors (MD), covers key topics related to HRCT, pattern recognition and interstitial lung diseases (ILDs) of the lung.

Each module starts with a lecture. After the lecture you will be challenged with practicing on real anonymised key cases. After the individual case readings we will discuss in the small group of your radiologist peers (maximum 8 participants). The goal of this intensive programme is to provide participants with advanced knowledge on the topic and give you confidence in your reports.

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 mentors.

The fellowship will run during working hours (approximately 9:00 to 5:00pm) so participants will be free to explore the beautiful city of Barcelona in the evenings and weekend should you choose to extend your stay.

This fellowship is organised by TMC Academy, an EACCME Trusted Provider.

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.

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.
