Echocardiography for Neonatologists

St George's Skills and Simulation Centre
St George's Hospital, Tooting, London, UK

This is a two day hands on course combining theory and practice which will include spending some time on the neonatal unit at St George’s Hospital. The course is ideally geared towards clinicians (of any level of seniority) with little or no prior knowledge in echocardiography.

We are more than happy to discuss your specific queries if you are a more experienced echocardiographer and wish to attend the course.

Spaces are limited and the course fills up very quickly.


Saturday, May 18, 2024 to Sunday, May 19, 2024, Cost: £575.00, Full.

Saturday, November 16, 2024 to Sunday, November 17, 2024, Cost: £575.00, 9 spaces left.

How To Find Us


The list of available accommodation is vast in London and easier for you to source by searching the internet. We would suggest central London along the Northern Line as Tooting is not the prettiest of suburbs. SGH is within easy walk from the Underground stop "Tooting Broadway" (Northern Line) which takes 20-25 minutes from Victoria Station.
