ESOR Course for EDiR on Breast Imaging - ON-LINE

November 6, 2020
Course informationESOR is continuing to organise foundation courses to prepare/assist those entering examinations for the European Diploma in Radiology (EDiR). These courses may also be attended by board-certified radiologists, wishing to update their knowledge in a specific area. A series of on-line courses is organised in November 2020. The format will include eleven courses, each one dealing with a specific organ/system-oriented theme.

The teaching format will include 40 minutes of theory and case presentations on six topics. Q&A sections will guarantee an interactive character. The teaching/learning objectives for each of the topics will strictly adhere to Level II of the European Training Curriculum. An exam simulation with multiple-choice questions for each lecture will round-off the exercise.

The ESOR Courses for EDiR are intended to help prospective candidates prepare for the European Diploma in Radiology examination. Attendance does not guarantee acceptance to take the examination or success in the examination.
