Does your program provide fellows with the opportunity to attend national or local conferences? All fellows attend SCA. We also have a two week echo bootcamp in August where fellows are excused from clinical duties and call and focus on learning perioperative ultrasound, TTE and TEE. Finally, we often send fellows to a course to learn more on imaging for percutaneous mitral valve repair.
