INTRODUCING EDEC: The European Diploma in EchoCardiography

  • Would you like to use echocardiography as a sequential assessment tool?

  • Are you eager to receive the relevant training and acquire the skills used for advanced critical care echocardiography?

This curriculum is designed for you!

ESICM has developed the European Diploma in EchoCardiography (EDEC) to ensure practitioners acquire the skills used for advanced critical care echocardiography, which relies on the qualitative and quantitative assessment of cardiac structure and function, with particular emphasis on haemodynamic monitoring and titration of care in the critically ill.

In this icTV video, ESICM President Daniel De Backer and EDEC Working Group member Antoine Vieillard-Baron provide an overview of the rationale for this new educational initiative and describe the advanced course that will be offered in conjuction with this new diploma in echocardiography:

Led by key experts in the field of echocardiography, this two-day advanced course moves beyond basic competencies, providing you with relevant training on image acquisition, image interpretation and clinical integration.

This course, organised by ESICM, is a mandatory component of the new European Diploma in EchoCardiography (EDEC) and counts towards the minimum 40 hours of advanced courses required before the evaluation tests.
