ESCed - the European Society of Cardiology’s new educational website

19.08.2003


The European Society of Cardiology (EBAC), in association with the European Board for Accreditation in Cardiology (EBAC), has set up ESCed, http://www.ESCed.org, as a one-stop resource for case studies, guidelines, references and abstracts. ESCed registrants can compare answers and clinical decisions with colleagues across Europe and earn Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits by following the on-line courses.



Professor Roberto Ferrari, Ferrara, Italy, Chairman of the ESC Education Committee states, "ESCed is based on a patient management-led core curriculum and delivered through a series of case studies with a hands-on approach to patient management. The internet is an ideal way to link medical professionals from all over Europe and enable them to interact and discuss key topics with their colleagues. It is my belief that ESCed will swiftly become a leading resource and discussion forum in European cardiology".

Dr Keith McGregor, ESC Scientific Programmes Director, comments, "The clear course structure of ESCed is easy to follow and very dynamic, with new case studies and materials being added on a continual basis. Feedback from registrants is crucial to keeping ESCed up to date and ensuring the site is user-friendly. ESCed users can also offer case studies or other educational materials to be uploaded onto the system and shared with their colleagues. We have designed ESCed to be a fully-interactive on-line tool and encourage comments and suggestions from all visitors and registrants".


All ESCed content is in accordance with ESC Guidelines and been authorised for CME credits by both the European Board for Accreditation in Cardiology (EBAC) and the European Accreditation Committee for CME in Europe (EACCME). For more details on CME in Europe see http://www.ebac-cme.org.

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
