SCMR Introductory Course in CMR: Level I Course
SCMR online introductory courseThis course is designed to cover theory, knowledge and some of the skills required for core training in CMR. The course takes approximately 10 hours to complete and is split into 10 topics.
There is a strong interactive component, with questions at the end of each topic, as well as lots of case reviews along the way.
The course is not designed to replicate the practical aspects of scan acquisition and live reporting that can only be gained from working in a CMR department. The course will however, provide you with 10 hours of theoretical and case-based learning, and contribute 35 online cases towards level I, II or III accreditation.
If you are enrolled in the course via SCMR, a certificate will be provided at the end.

Radiation Protection for Cardiology - e-learning course
The Radiation Protection for Cardiology e-learning programme has been developed by the British Institute of Radiology (BIR) in collaboration with representatives from the Royal College of Physicians’ Specialist Advisory Committee in Cardiology, scientists involved in the delivery of radiation protection courses for cardiologists (Manchester, Birmingham and Leicester), clinicians, radiographers and Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare.
Initially developed in 2016, the programme was updated in 2020 to include the new Ionising Radiation Regulations (IRR) and Ionising Radiation [Medical Exposure] Regulations (IR[ME]R).
The programme addresses the requirements of the Training Curriculum in Cardiology, in particular the need for trainee cardiologists to have completed a course on IR[ME]R. Experienced cardiologists will find the material useful as a refresher or a means of demonstrating continuing education.
