Essential to learning echo is hand on training. We have tried to bypass that for those who cannot attend by providing the echo videos of how to move the probe and how to do the echo. The crux of our training rests on spending time with us to learn echo.
The pillar of learning is understanding Heart Anatomy, Cardiac Echo Anatomy, Cardiology, Heart Disease, Knobology and Skills. These make a good training program. How have we demystified echocardiography training ? We have made it mathematical, step wise. Every person learns to do echo withing the first 3-4 days. We teach more than 20 views. We follow the guidelines by UK, US< Australia and European guidelines for echocardiography for Neonatologists. Everything is covered.
Always ready to accommodate Drs. for more focused training, for specific problems and spend a day extra later beyond the training to clear doubts.
You will learn enough to see all cardiac structures, from multiple views, you will learn the diagnosis and management of ASD, VSD, PDA, TOF, Critical Neonatal Disease and you will learn about presentation of heart ds, X-rays in neonatal CHD; you will learn about 20 different views, you will ensure your critical patient doesn't have TAPVD, Obstructed TAPVD.
We have rapidly adapted our training program to the needs of the time and upgraded to online lectures. The classes are held LIVE SESSIONS; the difficulties are discussed in GROUP DISCUSSIONS; Your assessment happens in QUIZ form after each group of lectures. HANDS-ON is still hands-on.
Introduction to echocardiography. Starts from History goes into Physics of Echo, Echo views, Apical, Parasternal, Suprasternal, Subcostal, and Knobs of the machine, Hemodynamics, etc. Total of 25 lectures (varies as content is dynamically changed based on the feedback of students).
In Level 2 we move on to accomplishing bigger goals and making you a CLINICAL echocardiographer. We discuss presentations of acyanotic CHD, cyanotic HCD, Neonatal presentation of Heart diseases, PDA, ASD, TOF. We show you images of these conditions.
3 SECTIONS TO IT:
What all is included in this level:
In Level 3, we teach you the practical things. We get you over to our place, do echoes, get your hands refined and then start doing echoes at your clinical setting itself. THIS HAS BEEN AFFECTED BY COVID CURRENTLY. Then you have to send us 1 normal/abnormal study once a week for 6 months. And then you are well qualified.
You need to make th payment and send us the repayment receipt via whatsapp 9958728855, or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your course (level 1) would be allocated to you. Similarly for Level 2 and Level 2.
If a course has been started, we cannot obviously cancel your course participation. Lectures once opened on the training site, cannot be revoked. So there is no return policy on joining a course.
A good internet connection, a clear audio and ability to go on video call for demonstration is essential. A very poor connection especially for video calls is a major setback for live sessions. For Zoom sessions you may keep you video off till you want to convey something and talk. Plus you should have the time for it; should be able to spare 30 min to 1 hour for the same. FOR GROUP DISCUSSIONS AND LIVE SESSIONS
1. DO NOT USE HOT SPOTS
2. DO NOT USE ONLY DATA IN POOR CONNECTION AREAS
Yes, you will need the following:
1. A Hardbound Copy
2. Pens: Blue, Black, Red: Specifically these colors
3. HOW TO PRACTICE HOLDING AND MOVING THE PROBE WHEN ONE DOESNT HAVE AN ECHO MACHINE: USE A WHITEBOARD MARKER PEN (SAME THICKNESS)
The the Online lectures will be available to you for a total of 6 months. this is enough time for you to learn echo in totality.
I WOULD LIKE TO MAKE THE PAYMENT FOR
LEVEL 1: 30,000 INR
LEVEL 2: 30,000 INR
LEVEL 3: 30,000 INR
LEVEL 1+2: 50,00 INR
Dr. Yogita Rathi an MBBS from Mahasamund, Chhattisgarh completed her Diploma in Child Health from FNNF. Dr. Yogita joined our Pediatric NeoEcho Course for 6 months and after completing her online course of levels 1 & 2 she came to our centre for Hands-on training. Watch the full video to learn about her experiences and key learning from Dr. Vikas Kohli our specialist head and mentor.
Dr. Nupur Sinha is an MBBS, DNB Pediatrics serving as Director & Consultant Pediatrics at Shiva Hospital in Bilaspur, Chattisgarh. She is sharing how "Neonatal Pediatric Echocardiography Training" under the proper guidance of Dr. Vikas Kohli a leading Pediatric Cardiologist has helped her understand Pediatric Neonatal Echo. She also tells briefly how this hands-on has helped her feel confident.
Dr. Poonam Agrawal working in the Govt. Medical College of Bilaspur, Chhatisgarh tells about her experience after completing Level 1 and Level 2 Neonatal & Pediatric Echo Training Course provided by Dr. Vikas Kohli
Dr. Vikas Kohli's Introduction to the course
Echo is not just about learning to hold the probe, but, understanding the patients congenital heart disease best and adding this echo information to better manage the patient. The echocardiogram information is essential, which is why we are teaching it to you.
We know Echo is not easy to learn. It needs to be learnt in a very systematic way, one step at a time. It needs multimodality sources of knowledge flowing into you: audio, video, ppt, drawings, flow diagrams and patient based teaching.
Individualized lecture discussion, clarification of each point, each query, things you would not ask in a group you feel comfortable asking right then and there.

I came from Algeria. I was afraid how 7 days will be enough to have the facts, and to learn after this, how to do echocardiography alone!! Infact with Dr. Vikas Kohli method, everything get easier, topics first, explanations then practice.
Everyday new views, every day new information buy never more than what I can understand. Very good experience, a change of my life to meet Dr. Vikas and to learn from him.
Technically I know only the terms of views. With the model of human heart along with diagram was most helpful and that was early to understand. If anything is wrong, I can say. But everything is perfect.
It was excellent to learn all the new things. Topics and lectures were informative & excellent. They were very informative. What I have learnt I will apply to patients.
It is a very interactive course. Dr. Vikas Kohli is really an amazing teacher as he clears all your doubts and gets to the basics and your concepts are all so clear. We got enough opportunity for hands on training. I feel very confident after the course.
The most interesting part of the course was detailed explanation of various views, interesting case scenarios discussed on one to one basis, this was excellent come. Keep it up.
If you're unsure about what type of training will work best for you, just tell us a little more about your needs. Please inform of your academic background (pediatrician,neonatologist, Intensivist, other group). We will get back to you as soon as possible with the answers you need!
