To best serve the needs of our patients, communities, faculty and learners, the Mayo Clinic Echocardiography Review Course for Boards and Recertification will be offered in a live stream format only. After careful consideration regarding the health and safety of everyone involved, and out of an abundance of caution, we have made the difficult decision to switch the meeting to a virtual live event.
To ensure you have timely access to the latest medical education in an interactive format, course content will be offered via live stream, April 23-27, 2021. Watch the website for program information as it becomes available.
We appreciate your understanding at this unprecedented time and hope to see you virtually, using a new interactive format, that will include the opportunity for faculty Q & A.

Mayo Echocardiography Board Review Course (EBRC) is an intensive course over 5 days specifically designed to prepare attendees for success on the National Board of Echocardiography (NBE) certification exam. It has a focused emphasis on the NBE examination format covering the entire field of Echocardiography including ultrasound physics, 2D and M-Mode, hemodynamics, valvular heart disease, ischemic heart disease, heart failure and cardiomyopathies, pericardial disease, congenital heart disease, and newer imaging techniques including strain and 3-D echocardiography. Well-known experts and recognized educators, comprised of Mayo Clinic faculty in each field of echocardiography will give in-depth didactic lectures pertaining particularly to integration of echocardiographic data into clinical practice. Each lecture will include multiple choice type question and answer sessions facilitated by an audience response system. This course is also an excellent choice for individuals looking to refresh and replenish their Echocardiography knowledge as it provides a comprehensive review of Echocardiography with pearls and concepts required for the clinical practice of Echocardiography. The course is supplemented by online supplemental content including board-style questions and answers.
New this year, based on feedback from attendees, is the incorporation of focused break-out sessions allowing the learner to choose supplemental content meeting individual needs on topics including hemodynamics, valve disease, and sessions on strain and 3D both with respect to knobology and use in clinical practice.
This course is intended for cardiologists, echocardiographers, and cardiology fellows. Participants with working knowledge of echocardiographic techniques and applications will benefit most from this program.
