Course Overview
The newly developed EACTS fundamentals in congenital cardiac disease course will be held for the first time this year. It will encompass surgical anatomy, physiology and principles of surgical and non-surgical treatment of congenital heart diseases for residents preparing for their EBCTS exams. Therefore, the focus will be on the basics and fundamentals of congenital heart disease which are being examined in the MEBCTS Level 1. Presentations will be given not only by congenital heart surgeons but also by paediatric cardiologists. Hence, pre-, intra- and postoperative management of various congenital heart defects will be discussed interactively and in exam style, to offer residents a sound exams’ preparation.

Target Audience
Skills Level 1 – Residents in training with the course content closely allied to the EBCTS syllabus.
