Presential Part

  • The presential part is designed to promote the contact between the course participants in addition to allowing a direct contact with the course directors and other experts in fetal medicine in order to share their experience and vision on the integration of ultrasound in fetal medicine and on modern fetal medicine in general. It consists of:
    • Meet the professor: Sessions 4 hours of exposure to practical aspects moderated by professors from Fetal I + D Education, with open discussions at the end of the sessions with participation of the course directors most of the days.
      • Ultrasound, Screening
      • Prenatal diagnosis
      • Echocardiography
      • Neurosonography
      • Doppler
    • INVASIVE TECHNIQUES WORKSHOPS: The workshops will be carried out on simulators with the guidance of experts in invasive techniques.
    • CLINICAL CASES: Participants will be asked to present their own clinical cases and these will be discussed in a group
    • Professors: Mar Bennasar, Olga Gómez, Miriam Illa, Marta López, Narcís Masoller, Edurne Mazarico, Anna Peguero, Miriam Pérez Cruz, Joan Sabrià, Iris Soveral.
