GALEN Courses


The GALEN Courses are focused on recent advances in radiological imaging, related to topics across cross-sectional imaging.

The courses are aimed at residents in their 4th and 5th year of training in radiology and recently board-certified radiologists.

Each programme is divided into lecture series followed by cases, offered by an internationally renowned European faculty.

All programmes have been specifically designed with the trainee radiologist in mind and are meant to deal with subjects of practical importance.
