Specialization Diploma in Fetal Neurology [SPA]

Presentation

Presentation

The course is designed to enhance your skills and achieve excellence in the diagnosis and management of Fetal central nervous system (CNS) anomalies. It offers a comprehensive approach covering anatomy, pathophysiology, and obtaining detailed images. Knowledge is acquired through intensive exposure to a large number of real cases representing all possible conditions and situations encountered in a fetal neurosonography unit.

The program provides an opportunity to learn from experts how to better perform advanced Fetal neurosonography while progressively increasing the understanding of all relevant CNS malformations. You will also become familiar with different options for Fetal therapy in some of the most common malformations and gain comprehensive advanced training in the assessment of Fetal CNS anatomy using various imaging techniques, mainly ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging.

With a strong focus on clinical decision-making, master classes and an in-person period in Barcelona are designed to complement specific skills in advanced neurosonography and prognosis evaluation, as well as the acquisition of crosscutting skills such as multidisciplinary interaction and patient counselling.

The interactive program provides many opportunities to participate in open discussions through a forum, share your own cases with field experts, and attend virtual master classes. Two weeks in Barcelona will allow for close interaction with experts and practical sessions.

This unique academic program addresses the growing demand for subspecialists with in-depth knowledge in Fetal Neurology.
