Conference Brochure

Blended Introduction to Carotid & Peripheral Vascular Duplex/Color Flow Ultrasound Course is organized by Gulfcoast Ultrasound Institute (GCUS) Inc. and will be held from May 16 - 17, 2019 at Gulfcoast Ultrasound Institute, st petersburg, Florida, United States of America. This Conference has been approved for a maximum of 12.00 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™.

Target Audience:
Sonographers, physicians, physician assistants and other medical professionals learning how to perform and/or interpret carotid duplex/color examinations. Participants may include (but are not limited to) those involved with internal medicine, cardiology, radiology, neurology, general/vascular surgery, and primary care.

Course Description:
Blended Introduction to Carotid & Peripheral Vascular Duplex/Color Flow Ultrasound Course is taught by leading vascular ultrasound experts. This course is designed to offer fifteen (15) months unlimited access to (2) Two online courses, plus (2) Two Days (12 Hours) scan lab with a 3:1 faculty to participant hands-on scan ratio at our facility in St. Petersburg, FL.
