Study essential elements of critical care ultrasonography to advance your practice and your patient care. This intensive 3-day, hands-on learning experience will focus on three key elements:

  • Image acquisition will be practiced on human models using high-quality ultrasound machines and supervised by experienced faculty. Training sessions give you practical, hands-on training with a 1:3 teacher-to-learner ratio, so you benefit from personal instruction.
  • Image interpretation during group sessions under the supervision of experienced faculty members offers relevant practice. Numerous ultrasound images demonstrating normal and pathologic findings will give you a comprehensive learning opportunity. As you improve your skills, you will be furthered challenged with unknowns and case-based image sets.
  • Knowledge base will be enhanced through pre-course study materials and lectures that focus on important aspects of critical care ultrasonography. Discussions will have immediate application within your practice.

Prerequisites
Prior to attending the course, you will be given access to pre-course materials. You will be expected to have knowledge based upon the specified material at the time of the course, which will reduce the need for lectures. The additional time provided will allow for more dedicated hands-on learning opportunities.

Target Audience
This course is ideal for intensivists interested in developing proficiency in the field. The course will emphasize hands-on training for those wishing to gain a thorough understanding of how to use ultrasonography to improve patient care. Specifically, the course is designed for:

  • Physicians in critical care
  • Physicians in ED medicine
  • Pulmonary and critical fellows
  • Physician assistants
