New National CMR teaching programme launched for cardiology trainees

By Dr. Oliver Jones

East of England (EoE) deanery trainees and consultants have developed a cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging teaching programme which is now open to cardiology trainees nationally.

Sessions are free of charge, and run on Zoom every Thursday 1pm – 1:30pm, with opportunity for questions at the end. Teaching is provided by Dr Batool Almogheer, Dr Dominique Auger, Dr Joban Sehmi and Dr Niall Keenan, all consultant cardiologists fully certified in CMR, and the programme has been endorsed by Prof Vass Vassiliou, EoE Cardiology Deputy Training Programme Director, and Dr Denise Braganza, EoE Cardiology Training Programme Director.

The cases in the programme have been mapped to the European Society of Cardiovascular Imaging Curriculum. Each session is independent, though by the end of the year it is aimed that the whole curriculum is covered.

Any interested trainees should contact Cardiology SpR Dr PK Pyae by email:
