Introduction to Emergency Medicine Ultrasound Live Training Course provides participants a strong foundation to perform the core critical care ultrasound applications as outlined in the ACEP and WINFOCUS ultrasound practice guidelines. These courses are taught by leading emergency medicine ultrasound experts that incorporates comprehensive lectures, interactive case presentations, system optimization, and needle guidance sessions. Extensive hands-on scanning workshops feature our industry leading 3:1 faculty to participant hands-on scan ratio with live models and inanimate phantoms for improved competence to immediately integrate the skills learned into clinical practice. Each participant also receives scanning checklists and a log of over 70 exams performed to apply towards hospital credentialing if needed.
