Curriculum on Echocardiography
A newly established curriculum on Echocardiography submitted by echocardiography committee was approved by the Council on 11 August 2014.
Two echocardiography preceptorship courses were conducted successfully in December 2013 and March 2014. The course is a 6 half-day course jointly organized with echo laboratory at Ruttonjee Hospital. The feedbacks from the 6 participants was very positive (evaluation report).
Two echo workshops have been scheduled to be held on 12 July 2014 and 10 January 2015. Within a very short period of time after promulgation, the workshops have already been full. The College will keep organizing similar events in the coming years.
E-survey on echocardiography
The Committee has performed a survey in mid year of 2013 in order to provide the College an anaesthesiological perspective of employing echocardiography in our daily practice. We had received feedbacks from over one hundred fellows and members and they were very positive in supporting the organisation of echo workshops and clinical attachments by the College.
