Emergency Fellowship Program is organized by TMC Academy and will be held from Jun 15 - 19, 2020 at Torre Mapfre, Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. This Program has been approved for a maximum of 29 CME Credits. Description: The purpose of the Fellowship is for the Fellow to learn through a one-week program based on lectures, supervised reporting on individual work stations and group discussion. The program is flexible and adaptable to the participants and their needs and requests, but, as a starting point, it will be general. The fellowship is offered to a small, selected group, to enhance the interaction. It is designed for general radiologists reporting emergency cases or wishing to embark on a subspecialization path. While the program will be adjusted as much as possible to meet the participants’ expectations and needs (including selection of lectures), the mentor will endeavour to encompass a broad spectrum of non-traumatic emergencies of the adult patient. Selected topics will first be presented in a lecture format, followed by representative cases of various difficulty levels, including typical presentations, false positives, false negatives etc. The fellows will review the images, first by themselves and then together with the mentor and the group. The aim is to reproduce the reading room experience, simulating and condensing full length emergency radiology fellowship programs. Learning objectives: • The fellowship will focus on non-traumatic emergencies of the adult patient • To learn about workflows in emergency radiology, epidemiology of emergency, modern approach to emergency including special patient categories. • To identify the differentiating imaging features of emergencies and to create clinically relevant reports • To understand the clinical questions that need to be addressed in various settings and how to answer them under time pressure Programme will include: • Lectures covering a wide variety of topics in imaging of non-traumatic emergencies of the head, neck, chest, abdomen and pelvis in the adult patient • Individual reporting with supervision/feedback by the Mentor • Group case discussion of the reported cases Level: Level II - General radiologist: The fellowship is designed for general radiologists reporting emergency cases or wishing to embark on a subspecialization path. Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.

"Enigmas in Dentistry" is organized by Dr. Travel Seminars, LLC and will be held from Jun 28 - Jul 05, 2020 at Allure of the Seas, Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. This 12 CE course is intended to elaborate clinical pearls you could take home that I am super-confident you will find applicable in your practice. Whenever I had given glimpses of these scientific explanations during my several yearly lecture/course presentations, I have noticed the enthusiasm of clinicians to finally get plausible scientific explanations for these issues and pearls for management. Objectives: • To understand and refresh the mechanism of anesthetic action and then begin to understand the various reasons for the annoyance of a failed block. Also to understand what it may mean if the patient has prolonged anesthesia. • To understand the phenomenon of joint hypermobility which is very common and the co-morbidities that are so significant to our daily practices, but not covered by most dental schools curricula. • To understand the recognition and management of persistent post-endo pain, how to manage and when to stop any further dental procedures on that tooth. • To learn the latest in literature on Sleep related bruxism in adults and children. Why is it NOT a “habit” and what more ominous things may come with it. • Understand the basics of pathophysiology of snoring and apnea and how this could impact your practice. Lecture Topics: • Failure and perils of local anesthesia: Why do some anesthetic blocks fail? What if the patient reports of having prolonged anesthesia every time? Are there anesthetics I should NOT use in a block? We will discuss the anatomic and other reasons for failure of local blocks. It is frustrating for the clinician when these don’t work out of the blue with no apparent reason. Is there a much higher hidden danger in a patient reporting consistent prolonged anesthesia after LA? • Joint hypermobility: Should I be concerned about my hyperflexible patient? What if she is a ballet dancer or cheer leader or gymnast? Is it possible that this is the patient most prone for IATROGENIC injuries? • Persistent post root canal pain : “Doc that tooth you did the root canal on: it still hurts”!! Is this that ever elusive extra canal perpetually hiding from you, or could it be something else? • Appliances for “grinding” : do they really treat bruxism? Sleep related bruxism is not related to dental occlusion?? Which is better an upper guard or lower? Soft or hard? With ramp, without ramp? What is the evidence? • Pediatric bruxism: I was told bruxism in children (mixed dentition stage) is “normal”. Literature is saying it might not be? • Occlusal dysesthesia: That one patient I can never get the “right bite” for! Is there any scientific explanation? • The perpetual denture seeker: This patient has had five dentures made, she still complains of pain! What possible pathology here? • Non-dental tooth ache: The seemingly normal tooth that hurts. The case of that newly “leaking” amalgam causing pain! Can dental pain jump from tooth to tooth? • IV or GA or LA: What are the red flags for my patient scheduled for IV sedation/or GA? • My sleep less , snoring patient: Should I be concerned about my snoring patient with hypertension? Is there any concern with local anesthetic? * Discounted fee based upon purchase with vacation package. If purchased separately, please add $400 to the fee.
