How Is the Course Structured?
The course is led by Acute Physicians with extensive experience in Point-of-Care Ultrasound (PoCUS). It consists of alternating presentations, live demonstrations and practical sessions with about four hours of hands-on scanning time across the day.
The group sessions use a range of different high quality PoCUS ultrasound machines. In addition to scanning on healthy individuals in groups of four with a faculty supervisor, there are a range of other systems and training devices available for free use during the practical sessions. These include a range of hand-held devices (Butterfly IQs, Vscan and Sonostar) a number of scannable manikins and a state-of-the-art simulator with a wide range of pathologies.
