Echocardiography course - A simple approach to a complex topic
Common defects + introduction to complex defects

Become competent in Adult Congenital Heart Disease

The Adult Congenital Heart Disease (ACHD) Bachelor Course is an online echocardiography video teaching program. The course covers all major congenital heart defects such as ventricular and atrial septal defects (ASD+VSD), patent ductus arteriosus (PDA), congenital valve disease, LVOT / RVOT obstruction, tetralogy of Fallot (TOF), Coarctation (CoA) and more. The course also includes the basics of complex congenital abnormalities (i.e., surgical procedures, Transposition of the great arteries (TGA), single ventricles, and abnormal pulmonary venous connections (APVC). Watch hundreds of examples, patient demonstrations and learn ACHD from top experts in the field.
