DescriptionThis robust 1 1/2-day course incorporates live models, simulations, didactic lectures, and is ideal for general internists, family practice physicians, emergency physicians, residents, fellows, and advanced practice providers.
Attendees will participate in hands-on sessions and lectures that will cover the basics in several areas of medical ultrasound with clinical applications in inpatient, outpatient and emergency settings. These skills will form the foundation for basic assessment with point-of-care ultrasound as well as procedural methods such as FAST, RUSH, Cardiovascular, MSK, DVT and Renal.
Please note: This course is not a certificate course. It is an opportunity to learn and practice point of care ultrasound. Certification and privileges are determined by your local regulatory bodies and credentialing systems.
