Description

This fellowship is meant for radiologists (to-be) who would like to become more confident on evaluating small and large bowel staging/restaging cancers on MRI as well IBD and Pelvic Floor MRI.

During 5 days in Barcelona, participants will gain in-depth knowledge on the value of MRI during the management of rectal cancer, as well as colon, IBD, and pelvic floor MRI. Fellows will also learn how to interpret MR images and deal with difficulties by evaluating numerous cases.

Each day starts with a lecture. After the lecture participants will be challenged with practicing on real anonymised key cases collected from the radiologist mentors' collections. After the individual case readings, we will discuss as a group. The relaxed small group environment will make it easy to ask questions, make mistakes, and get immediate feedback from the specialised radiologist mentor in order to learn.

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.
