Dr Filipe Fernandes

Accredited Clinical Vascular Scientist, UK

“Amazing tool for vascular surgeons looking for training in vascular ultrasound.”

Dr Flavia Gentile Johanson

Consultant Vascular Surgeon, Luxemburg

"I am an internal medicine specialist with an interest in ultrasound as a bedside diagnostic tool. I was pleased by ABC carotid master course for the following reasons:
1. It explains the subject from the very basic to the complex.
2. The mix of reading material and video lectures is a better way to learn. This is a case where 1+1 is more than 2.
3. The pricing is really good for the value.

I recommend learning with ABC vascular and cannot wait for their hands on training."
