Description

The fellowship is designed for general radiologists reporting neuroradiology cases or wishing to embark on a subspecialised path. Coverage of the entire field of diagnostic neuroradiology will be provided, however —thanks to the small group nature of the training— the programme is adaptable depending on the participants’ expectations and needs (including selection of lectures).

Selected topics will first be presented in a lecture format, followed by representative cases mixed with other neuroradiology cases - participants 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 neuroradiology fellowship programs.

Participation in this fellowship, limited to a maximum of 6 radiologists, will enhance and strengthen your knowledge in case interpretation. 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.

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.


Testimonials:

"The setup of a small group with hands-on cases is excellent. I really found the fellowship useful and educating. It will eliminate confusion when reporting on degenerative spine and brain tumours in my practice."
Dr. Ioan Gemescu, Radiologist, University Emergency Hospital of Bucharest, Romania (Fellow, Feb 2020)

"I’m very satisfied with the course and the lecturer and believe these learnings will help me become more independent and confident on reporting neuroradiology cases correctly. I especially liked the one-on-one interaction with the lecturer Dr. Rumboldt throughout the week.”
Dr. Nikolaos Voulgarakis, Radiologist, Karolinska University Hospital, Sweden (Fellow, Feb 2020)

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.
