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.

New technique promises tunable laser devices

Whispering gallery mode (WGM) resonators are used to make tiny micro-lasers, sensors, switches, routers and other devices. These tiny structures rely on a...

Im Focus: Ultrafast snapshots of relaxing electrons in solids

Using ultrafast flashes of laser and x-ray radiation, scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (Garching, Germany) took snapshots of the briefest electron motion inside a solid material to date. The electron motion lasted only 750 billionths of the billionth of a second before it fainted, setting a new record of human capability to capture ultrafast processes inside solids!

When x-rays shine onto solid materials or large molecules, an electron is pushed away from its original place near the nucleus of the atom, leaving a hole...

Im Focus: Quantum Sensors Decipher Magnetic Ordering in a New Semiconducting Material

For the first time, physicists have successfully imaged spiral magnetic ordering in a multiferroic material. These materials are considered highly promising candidates for future data storage media. The researchers were able to prove their findings using unique quantum sensors that were developed at Basel University and that can analyze electromagnetic fields on the nanometer scale. The results – obtained by scientists from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics, the Swiss Nanoscience Institute, the University of Montpellier and several laboratories from University Paris-Saclay – were recently published in the journal Nature.

Multiferroics are materials that simultaneously react to electric and magnetic fields. These two properties are rarely found together, and their combined...
