The EACVI Core Syllabus on echocardiography provides a summary of the core knowledge for cardiology fellows, for cardiac sonographers and for continuing medical education of trained cardiologists.Providing adequate education is one of the main goals of the European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging (EACVI). Echocardiography is able to provide an impressive amount of information using different modalities, approaches, and applications, but needs adequate teaching and training of operators, performed in a cost effective and reliable way. The purpose of producing a Core Syllabus is to enumerate the elements of knowledge that the EACVI expects the European echocardiography operator to possess. This document represents a driving force for the EACVI to deliver educational resources which to assist the learners in performing comprehensive and accurate echocardiographic studies and achieving accreditation.

"The syllabus will represent the foundation of teamwork, being at the base of communication in between colleagues, in between cardiologists and sonographers, in between specialists and trainees, in between imaging modalities, in between specialities and, finally, at the base of communication with patients."
