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.

Participation in this fellowship, limited to a maximum of 8 radiologists, will enhance and strengthen your knowledge in image 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 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.

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.
