What if I have no prior ultrasound experience?
Our course is designed to give you training with little or no experience. For those who have experience, it is a great way to brush up and earn CME. After completion of the first basic course, we will be announcing future advanced courses for those interested.
How do I obtain CME for this event?
CME is obtained by watching the pre-course material and completing a brief post- test / survey followed by completion of the workshop on March 16th, 2019. In addition, a survey will need to be filled out on completion of the workshop for CME credit. You will be given a certificate stating your completion of CME at the end of the course to submit to your institution or accrediting council.
Will I get dedicated hands on training?
Yes, you will be taught in small groups of no more than 5 participants per teacher. You will be taught directly while scanning live models on ultrasound equipment supplied by various companies.
