Description

A successful fellowship will provide you with knowledge that can help you address your ongoing clinical challenges, as well as future pursuits.

This Musculoskeletal MRI fellowship, taught by highly knowledgeable radiologist Dr. Alexeys Perez, will include an overview of the most common joints in practice with a daily presentation, individual case readings, and with group-based case read-outs.

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

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.
