This online fellowship of 3 half days, facilitated by expert thoracic radiologist Prof. Pierre-Yves Brillet, covers key topics related to pattern recognition and interstitial lung diseases (ILDs) of the lung.
Each module starts with a lecture. After the lecture you will be challenged with practicing on real anonymised key cases. After and during the individual case readings there will be plenty of time for group discussion and Q&A with the mentor.
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.
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.

“Very good class. I recommend it to everyone.”
Dr. Michaela Kubincova, Radiologist, Belgium (Fellow, Dec 2022)
Prefer a more basic course?
Please note that this is a more advanced course aimed at Level II and Level III radiologists. It could be beneficial (although not required) to first follow our ONLINE HRCT (basic) Fellowship with Dr. Fredrik Ahlfors.
