ESC Working Group on Grown-up Congenital Heart Disease (GUCH)

ACHD Learning Center

The Adult Congenital Heart Disease (ACHD) Learning Center is a free of charge online educational program created by a group of experts for cardiology trainees.

The objective is to provide greater access to structured educational material in order facilitate training, disseminate knowledge, and improve the care of adults with congenital heart disease worldwide.

This highly innovative teaching tool now contains 50 learning modules with an additional 5 to be added shortly. Learning modules include a 15-20 minute presentation per topic and related multiple choice test questions.
