Description

Inflammatory and infectious disease of the central nervous system constitute a relatively large group of brain and spinal cord disorders encountered in everyday practice. It is a group of diseases that require prompt establishment of diagnosis and immediate management of the patient in order to improve prognosis. Timely recognition of subtle signs on imaging can be crucial for patient survival and overall quality of life. Going through real-time cases, the Fellow will be guided through a broad range of everyday and less common imaging findings, with the aim to consolidate their experience and build confidence in dealing with these more or less unusual imaging findings.

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.

Online sessions are recorded so that participants can review on their own time following the training.

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 organised by TMC Academy, an EACCME Trusted Provider.
