What skill level is this course geared towards?
This course is designed for novice to intermediate ultrasound users. The focus on hands-on scanning allows our expert instructors to tailor the learning to your skill level.
I don't need more lectures- I want scanning time!
That wasn't really a question, but that's exactly how this course is designed! After a quick demo of scanning technique by our expert faculty, we scan live models in small groups. You will have plenty of time to scan with tips and tricks from our experts, and at the end of the course you will get a letter detailing the number of supervised scans you completed.
I'm really new to ultrasound- what if I want some backround lectures?
We will send you links to introductory lectures so you can get up to speed before the course, or refresh your memory after the course.
