The Echo Masterclass was created by 123sonography in cooperation with the Medical University of Vienna, the largest teaching hospital in Europe.
Our faculty consists of internationally renowned echo teachers with many years of teaching experience. They all follow a similar hands-on teaching approach, focusing on skills and strategies that work.
They have published in prestigious journals such as the New England Journal of Medicine, Circulation, The European Heart Journal and many more.
A large proportion of our teachers are also involved in the generation of evidence based guidelines on the diagnosis and management of valve diseases and other pathologies.
Getting access to the Masterclass will put you in touch with top-notch experts. And the best part is that they will teach you in your living room.
So let our Masterclass faculty be your echo mentors. You don’t have to come to them, they will come to you.
What our Students Think
Over the last couple of years, we have taught thousands of doctors and sonographers in the art and science of echocardiography. Our teaching approach is battle tested and has been proven to work times and times again. Here is what our students are saying about us:
I want to express my appreciation for such a wonderful Echo course! I have participated in many courses over the years and sincerely have not come across one better than this one! I loved the real time scanning demonstrations, the lectures as well as the excellent cases in the "Atlas". You have it all covered! Thank you again! It sure has made my HEART happy-haha!!(and much more confident) I would recommend this course to everyone!- Mary Ellen Dugan, White Haven, USA
I want to thank you for the best lessons in the world I have ever had. My echocardiography leave teacher is very surprised and satisfied how I know everything, better than doctors at the department who work there and the other doctors at the course. So your classes were the best thing could ever happen to me!- Natasa Pajkic, Belgrade, Serbia
I'm enjoying the course very much and learning a lot. You've done a great job putting this together.- Ana Bentzen, Uhingen, Germany
Great thanks to all 123sonography team members for one of the greatest and best courses of echocardiography online, simple, clear to understand and full of important information for daily clinical practice. Thank you again, go ahead and happy new year we need to see more courses from this great echocardiography team.- Dr Mohammed Ahmed, Mosul , Iraq
Thank you for sharing your knowledge, tricks and VERY helpful practical pieces of advice. I feel far more confident doing echo than ever before - and - what is important - I see much more on the screen of my Vivid I. It is practical course making you a sensible echocardiographer! The Atlas is a good advantage to the course - extremly usefull when you see something "strange" at work - immediately in the evening you can double check in the Atlas what it might have been.- Piotr Paczko, Gdansk, Poland
I wanted to thank you for being my exclusive source of study for passing the 2011 National Board of Echocardiography ASCeXAM (Adult Special Competence Exam in Echocardiography). As a non-cardiac anesthesiologist in the United States I wanted to learn more about transthoracic echocardiography and diseases of the heart. Your website met that need perfectly and allowed me to achieve a solid passing scoring on this very difficult exam.- Neil Green M.D., Scottsdale, USA

How We Will Turn You Into an Echo Expert? - What is the Echo Masterclass?
The Masterclass is a special 3 month teaching program that only takes place a couple of times per year (all in all, you’ll get access to the teaching materials for a total of 6 months). The number of spots are limited. It was designed by echocardiographers for echocardiographers. We have taken what has worked best in countless years of echo teaching experience and turned it into a wickedly effective online course. The Masterclass consists of:
20 Online video lectures
...covering the entire field of transthoracic echocardiography in a highly structured and comprehensive manner. These lectures lay the foundation for a thorough understanding of everyday echocardiography. The knowledge conveyed in the lectures is complemented by a rich collection of patient demos and cases (the Atlas). All lectures follow the same hands-on teaching approach. Clear and colorful graphics help to foster retention and understanding; cases put the knowledge into a real-life context. Each lecture is around 50 to 60 minutes long. Upon successful completion, students can claim CME certificates (2 credits per lecture; learn more about our CME credits).
...showing how to perform echocardiography. We have invited and filmed countless patients with the most common and relevant pathologies. From these demos, you will learn how to perform echo on real patients, what tricks to apply in order to get good images, how to move and hold the transducer, how to adjust your machines and much, much more.
...consisting of over 5000 echo examples and cases. You can use the Atlas to search for specific pathologies, cases or echo features. In order to become a true echo expert, you will have to see lots and lots of echo examples. Our Atlas gives you a unique opportunity to virtually increase your case-load and boost your repertoire directly from your living room.
The Echocardiography E-Book
...is our online echo reference. You can come here in order to look up facts or study for a test. The e-Book is enriched with many interactive features and multimedia materials. Video material is integrated into the text. Several chapters are already online. This is work in progress: We constantly work on the text, figures and functionality to assure that the information you get is completely up-todate. Please give us your feedback we want to write the book to suit YOUR needs.
