Onsite part

The face-to-face period consists of one week in Barcelona, scheduled for March 20th-24th 2023. A visit to the Fetal Cardiology Unit of Hospital Sant Joan de Déu in BCNatal (Center for Maternal-Fetal and Neonatal Medicine, Barcelona) will be included.

  • During this period of time, participants will have the opportunity to meet faculty and their tutors. The onsite stay will include the following activities:
    • * “Meet the professor: sessions that enable personal discussion on the most relevant aspects of each module, based on clinical cases, with faculty members.
    • * Invited lectures from international experts on a specific topic of interest, including basis of different fetal cardiac imaging, core aspects on assessment of biventricular function, electrocardiography, genetics in CHD, impact of CHD on neurodevelopment, fetal-neonatal transition, and fetal cardiac programming. This will enable interaction with postgraduate faculty members, and also with invited professors from other universities, experts in a specific topic of interest.
    • Workshops on new echocardiographic modalities, computational models or specific clinical scenarios.
