Personal accreditation

Personal accreditation with the BSE involves a written and practical exam, a collection of full studies and a logbook of cases. Accreditation is recognised throughout the UK and Europe.

Types of accreditation

Paediatric accreditation

Members who wish to attain accreditation in paediatric echocardiography can undertake the European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging (EACVI) paediatric CHD certification process.

Mutual recognition

As part of our commitment to providing continuing professional education across the field of echocardiography, we have a mutual recognition arrangement in place with the EACVI.

This reciprocal agreement means that candidates who hold BSE accreditation only need to pass the EACVI written exam in order to obtain EACVI certification. Similarly, individuals holding EACVI certification need only submit a log book and disc to achieve BSE accreditation.

Full fees are applicable in both cases.
