This interactive course is designed to combine hands-on training alongside the experienced Floating Doctors staff with classroom didactics lead by an international staff of highly trained and experienced physicians. Once onsite, there will be a total of four days of classroom discussions, reviewing perspectives on best practices for remote care diagnostics and treatments, two-and-a-half hours of hands-on portable ultrasound techniques, and two days of hands-on training in remote clinics where learners will be paired with a Lead Medical Provider with the Floating Doctors.
This conference is ideal for experienced and inexperienced medical practitioners primarily from internal medicine, emergency medicine, family practice, pediatrics and obstetrics/gynecology who have a desire to effectively participate in providing quality healthcare in the remote setting, especially in tropical areas.
