About the course

Our very popular one day CORE (level 1) Emergency Ultrasound course addresses the knowledge and practical skills recommended by the Royal College of Emergency Medicine as necessary to achieve competency in the four CORE (level 1) clinical applications of Emergency Ultrasound.  It also covers the mandatory components of ultrasound physics and good governance.  

Before the course we provide access to a series of prerecorded videos including the Physics of Ultrasound and the four core applications. Your day with us includes lectures on the practical aspects of point of care ultrasound and good governance.We also provide comprehensive lectures on each of the core applications:  FAST, AAA, ELS and vascular access followed by lots of hands on scanning practice in each of the CORE applications on normal and pathological subjects. A simulator is used to teach ultrasound guided central venous access. Our faculty of ED consultants have extensive experience in using ultrasound in the Emergency Department. Teaching in small groups they will guide you through your scans, offer useful tips on gaining the best image, and advice on maintaining your logbook beyond the course.
