The Point of Care Ultrasound Course - Online is organized by Provider Practice Essentials (PPE), LLC.

Learn the ins and outs of point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS)

Immersive Online Program

  • Thorough online tutorial of commonly scanned body parts, and their required techniques
  • Taught by a Physician, Physician Assistant, and Ultrasonographer
  • Learn at your own pace

Master the Basics

  • Learn about ultrasound equipment, physics, and principles of use
  • See techniques for improved visualization and settings
  • Build upon those foundations to apply to scan for clinical use and decision-making
  • Thorough lectures provide a high level of detail along with expected normal and abnormal findings

Combine Ultrasound with Decision-Making

  • Interpret ultrasound findings and apply them to clinical decision-making
  • Utilize clinical decision rules to make better medical decisions
  • Improve your understanding of POCUS and maximize its use

Extensive Content:
11 topics including technique, probe selection, eFAST, Pulmonary, Ocular, Skin and Soft Tissue, Lower Extremity, and more!

10 Category I CME Credits, 8.5 Emergency credits, 1.5 pharmacology credits.
