FOAMed: A non-commercial project
ECGwaves.com is a non-profit project and differs from many online resources for learning ECG interpretation. In order to provide you with the best possible learning experience we have invested significantly in developing and maintaining this course. We continue to pursue our mission with great enthusiasm, because we love ECG interpretation and teaching. Nevertheless, in order to reduce our losses we currently charge $10 for a permanent membership. $10 is a fraction of the cost of comparable books and courses (which costs anywhere between $60 and $600) and it does not cover our costs of maintaining the course. Importantly, students (worldwide) may become members at no cost (i.e completely free) by using the coupon "student" when registering. All individuals (students as well as professionals) from low and middle income countries are also eligible to use that coupon in order to obtain the membership without paying. We sincerely value FOAMed.
This online course includes an ECG book, video lectures, test/quiz and other resources to enhance your ECG interpretation skills. Emphasis is on clinical ECG interpretation but the course will also touch on other topics to cover important concepts in cardiovascular medicine. The course content is in line with American and European guidelines (ACC, AHA, ESC). Thus, our recommendations regarding diagnosis and management is concordant with current clinical guidelines.
The course is created by Dr Araz Rawshani (MD, PhD) from the University of Gothenburg, Sweden. Dr Rawshani is a cardiovascular researcher with interest in acute and cardiovascular medicine, as well as diabetology. Dr Rawshani has published original articles in the New England Journal of Medicine, JAMA (Internal Medicine), The Lancet (Diabetes & Endocrinology), British Medical Journal (BMJ), and serves as peer-reviewer in the field of cardiovascular medicine.
