Discover New Cardiology Guidelines with Online CME

Oakstone’s Echocardiography – A Comprehensive Review online CME focuses on contemporary clinical standards, in addition to presenting new available modalities, emerging indications, and new approaches to echocardiography.

 

Directed by Scott D. Solomon, MD and Maja Cikes, MD, PhD, this continuing medical education program includes 36 lectures organized in four sections – general principles, disorders, modalities, and settings. It’s available online so you can earn CME credits whenever, wherever, and will help you to:

  • Understand clinical indications and quality assurance issues
  • Recognize clinical uses, advantages, potential complications, and limitations of new available modalities
  • Know the techniques needed to evaluate various diseases and disorders
  • Summarize the characteristic findings of diseases of the myocardium
