We have created this one day Introduction to Ultrasound for Acute Medicine based on our already successful Core (level 1) Emergency Ultrasound Course. We have consulted with a number of physicians to ensure this course meet the needs of Ds working in acute medicine and dealing with medical emergencies and admissions. This course focuses on:
Chest Scanning, Echo, Vascular Access, Basic Abdominal Ultrasound, DVT assessment
The course includes focussed teaching on the key skills and 5 hours of practical experience in small groups. The course is limited to 15 places with four faculty working with normal subjects. The course includes experience with 5 different portable US machines and a hand-held device of the type now increasingly being used in clinical settings.
This course has been approved by the Federation of the Royal Colleges of Physicians of the United Kingdom for 6 category 1 (external) CPD credit(s).
