Many clinicians have recognised the huge potential of point-of-care ultrasound (PoCUS). PoCUS can be enormously useful in diagnosis and also in patient management. It can also add interest to clinical work and give a new dimension to our understanding of clinical problems.
As a result, many clinicians are wanting to develop their point-of-care ultrasound skills and knowledge to a deeper level than is routinely available within the specialty-based certification structures (FAMUS, FUSIC, Core etc). As the existing alternatives, PgCert, PgDip and MSc involve a time and cost commitment that is unrealistic for many, there is a movement across many universities to offer shorter courses suitable for people in full-time work. This has led to the concept of micro-credentials.
We have teamed up with Canterbury Christ Church University to create ultrasound micro-credentials.
Cost: £450 per micro-credential
Venue: Terracotta Court (ground floor), 167 Tower Bridge Road, London, SE1 3LN
Registration will be through Canterbury Christ Church University. You can find registration links on each of the specific micro-credentials pages:
NB: You can only enrol on 2 micro-credentials at a time
