Any full-time recognised intensivist who has attended a basic course in echocardiography in the last two years can apply for EDEC.
It will be required to document your position as a full-time intensivist and to provide a certificate of attendance for the basic course. Also you will need to identify a local mentor and a supervisor.
- ESICM member users: complete the EDEC application form (My Esicm> My Edec > Edec Profile)
- Non ESICM member users: create an ESICM account & complete the EDEC application form (My Esicm> My Edec > Edec Profile)
As a final step in the application process, provisional payment (via credit card) must be provided. Please note that ESICM will only process the charges once the application is accepted.*
*Some financial institutions may provisionally deduct the fee immediately upon entering the credit card data during registration, however these funds are held by the individual bank – not ESICM, so any issues must be resolved by the candidate with their own bank.
- ESICM Members: EUR 800
- Non ESICM Members: EUR 1300
Fees include access to the logbook, educational activites and the EDEC examinations.
Admission to the EDEC Advanced course at LIVES and other additional external training courses are not included in this fee.
Candidates will be informed by email.
When notification of acceptance is received, EDEC candidates have 24 months to meet the requirements for validation.
