Quality medical care in low-resource settings is often hampered by lack of objective clinical information. ultrasonography is a useful technology in such settings, providing vital data to support patient care decision-making. This course enhances performance and interpretation for ultrasonography of carotid, thyroid, heart, lung, aorta, abdomen, urinary tract, DVT screening, joint and venous access, and eFAST exam.
This is a hybrid learning experience that combines online preparation with a one-day in-classroom workshop that provides hands-on skills in thyroid, venous and DVT screening, vascular and carotid, abdominal and renal, cardiac, thoracic, joint and venous access imaging.
