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.

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.
