The AEPC, in collaboration with ERN GUARD-Heart, has initiated a series of teaching webinars on paediatric cardiology and cardiac surgery topics, serving towards preparation for the AEPC exam. The sessions will cover topics summarised in the “AEPC Recommendations for Training in Paediatric and Congenital Cardiology" (CITY, 2020).
These webinars, planned through the Educational Committee and junior member representatives, will take place on a biweekly basis on Wednesdays between 17:00-18.30 CET, starting on 7 December 2022.
The format of the webinars will generally consist of a case presentation, followed by 2 lectures, and will allow sufficient time for Q&A and interaction with the speakers.
Registration is open to AEPC members & non-members. Upon registration you may select those webinars you want to attend.
