Dear Participant, Dear Colleague,

thank you for joining to the Advanced Online Papillon Course which officially starts on December 1, 2022 and ends on May 31, 2023. The course is endorsed by the European Thyroid Association.

We present a full curriculum on thyroid ultrasound and related topics (including the thyroid, parathyroid, neck lymph nodes and discussion of differential diagnostic issues). Completion of the Advanced Course requires a significant time investment from the participants, approximately 6 to 10 hours weekly depending on the level of their pre-course knowledge.

If you are visiting this page for the first time, be sure to read the brief instructions which can be reached by the three buttons in the left column. These are Must read, Technical help and the How to do it? parts.

The Curriculum summarizes and schedules the various learning materials including the live events.

If you have been already familiar with these recommendations, you can start with the studying of the subchapters which are enlisted in the left column. A test right away. If the layout of the page is such that the individual chapters are not displayed one below the other in a column on the left, you are probably reading these lines from a mobile phone or tablet. As we pointed out (see Must read), certain information may be lost when using these tools. So, we ask everyone to use a laptop or PC or MAC if possible.

If you have any problem, please, do not hesitate to send me a message to the official e-mail of the Papillon Course, to

We really hope that the 6 months of the course will be useful and fruitful for you.
