Mayo Echocardiography Review Course is an intensive 3.5-day course specifically designed to prepare attendees taking the American Society of Echocardiography (ASE) certification examination. It has a focused emphasis on the ASE examination format, ultrasound physics, 2D and M-mode, hemodynamics, valvular heart disease, ischemic heart disease, heart failure and cardiomyopathies, pericardial disease, congenital heart disease, and newer imaging techniques. The course reviews all aspects of cardiovascular ultrasound, with a practical and clinical disease-orientated focus. Well-known experts and recognized educators in each field of echocardiography give in-depth didactic lectures pertaining particularly to integration of echocardiographic data into clinical practice. Each lecture is followed by multiple-choice type question-and-answer sessions facilitated by an audience response system. Special evening sessions include cardiac image and gross pathology correlation, a hemodynamic workshop, and an entertaining game show involving the entire audience that reviews highlights of material covered in the course. This course concludes with a mock exam.
