This online thoracic radiology course provides medium and advanced knowledge through a series of lectures, followed by individual case readings and group case discussions.

Each module starts with a lecture. After the lecture, you will be challenged with practicing on real anonymised key cases using a PACS viewer. After and during the individual case readings there will be plenty of time for group discussion and Q&A with Prof. Brillet.

TMC Academy online radiology courses 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. Online sessions are recorded so that participants can review on their own time following the training.

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 radiology course is organised by TMC Academy, an EACCME Trusted Provider.
