WCUI’s CME Division wrapped up an active 2020 year with a virtual webinar on Fetal Echocardiography: Beyond the 4-Chamber View. During the 2-hour webinar, speakers Jason Grabham RDCS, FASE, Externship Director at WCUI Phoenix, and Dr. Ericka Sheller-McLaughlin of Phoenix Children’s Hospital teamed up to educate attendees on the importance of increasing prenatal detection rates of congenital heart disease and provided a comprehensive overview of the complete fetal echocardiographic evaluation, including normal and abnormal anatomic features and physiology.
This SDMS approved event provided learners with 2.0 units as the year came to a close and rounded out our 2020 CME Library where participants of the webinar and those who completed the library earned 8.5 CME credits.
The Fetal Echocardiography Live Webinar had a total of 59 attendees and 63 Zoom registrations. Out of that total, 18 were WCUI Alumni and 3 were WCUI Community Partners/Affiliates.
After the webinar, we re-connected with attendees to get their feedback on the content, speakers, and how learnings from the activity can directly impact patients in the workplace.
Thoughts on Lead Instructors:

“Great visuals, clear explanation combined with warmth & professionalism.”
“Excellent job of presenting the material and explaining the various defects in an easy-to-understand way… great pace and easily kept my attention start to finish.”
“Very detailed and comprehensive, excellent course.”
Personal Improvements Attendees Gained from the Course:
“Learning about the outflows. Improved my knowledge of understanding why those images are taken as a technician. Will definitely be useful in my field as I work.”
“Evaluate the fetal heart with further understanding of views beyond the 4-chamber, share this information with 4 other Sonographer’s in my office, and increase our detection rate of cardiac defects using extra knowledge shared by this webinar.”
“Purpose of determining fetal cardiac position & importance of high probability of heart defects.”
The WCUI Continuing Medical Education Division had tremendous growth this year through the adaptation of webinars during a tough year. The WCUI CME team looks forward to hosting more webinars, in-person and hybrid courses, and more in 2021 starting off with the first annual 2021 CME Week February 1-5. Interested in joining?
