Description

The purpose of the fellowship is to learn about different topics in MSK radiology through a five-day long programme based on multiple lectures, daily reporting from individual work stations on specific teaching cases with subsequent group discussion. A successful fellowship will provide you with knowledge that can help you address your ongoing clinical challenges, as well as future pursuits.

This week-long MSK fellowship includes an overview of the most common joints in practice with a daily presentation, individual case readings from the TMC Academy teaching file with group-based case read-outs. Standard reporting templates are used in order to help you navigate and write high-quality reports. Tailored programmes can be offered if requested well in advance.

At the end of the programme you will be able to comfortably identify and report on common pathology seen in daily practice, including in the sports field.

Participation in this fellowship, limited to a maximum of 8 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.
