This is a one day, hands-on, point-of-care ultrasound course designed for Physicians Assistants working in various specialties (anesthesia, critical care, emergency medicine, urgent care, surgical specialties).
It will cover the following topics:
Physics and Knobology of Ultrasound
Cardiac and IVC Evaluation
The day will consist of high-yield lectures presented by internationally known fellowship trained sonographers. Each lecture will be followed by small group hands-on practice.
The HANDS-ON TRAINING will be the main focus of this workshop as PRACTICING ultrasound is key to developing the skill, and the majority of teaching will be in small groups with separate instructors.
The student-to-teacher ratio is 5:1. There will be plenty of time to interact and learn from the various instructors throughout the day.
You will have online access to pre-course material/tutorials for review to maximize your hands-on learning experience.
Both breakfast and lunch will be provided. There will also be a happy hour following the course where you can continue to develop new friendships and catch up with old friends, in addition to getting to know your instructors.
