Description

The purpose of the Fellowship is for the Fellow to learn through a structure based on daily lectures, reporting from individual workstations with subsequent group discussion. The programme is for Radiologists (to-be) who would like to become expert on reporting prostate MRI.

The Online Prostate MRI fellowship includes an overview of the main indications to perform MRI of the prostate: Diagnosis (PI-RAD), staging (local and systemic), follow up (post-treatment and active surveillance) and whole body MRI.

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 organised by TMC Academy, an EACCME Trusted Provider.
