2020 | Yale Point of Care Ultrasound Online Course
2020 | YALE FALL POCUS
November 12-13, 2020 | Learn POCUS Online!
Inquires to firstname.lastname@example.org
You're invited to refresh and build upon your ultrasound skills at our 2020 Fall Online course! Our program is brought to you by the organizers of the popular New England Emergency & Critical Care Ultrasound course, which has just finished it's thirteenth successful year!
Day one will include a refresher on orientation and finding fluid, basic echo, pelvic, thoracic, vascular and FAST examinations. Day two will add more advanced symptom-based ultrasound such as in hypotension and dyspnea as well as procedural applications. Day two will also include break-out groups for areas of special interest. The course will emphasize interactivity as much as possible with chat monitoring by multiple faculty and case-based small group break-out sessions throughout both days. You can sign up either or both days based on your experience and interest-participation will be limited to ensure a low faculty to student ratio.
While we would rather be in Newport for our annual Yale POCUS course, during these times we will bring together our world-class faculty for an interactive Zoom course on point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS). While the focus will be on emergency ultrasound, this course should be relevant to any practitioner who wants to learn or enhance their POCUS use. This two-day course will cover more basic applications on day one and more advanced and integrated applications on day two. Each day can be taken as a stand-alone or together (we recommend those taking only day two be familiar with basic POCUS). The course will be capped at 40 attendees and we will have frequent breakout sessions for small groups and cases moderated by fellowship trained faculty.
During day two (Friday, November 13) we will be offering breakout sessions dedicated to special areas of interest:
- POCUS in pediatrics
- POCUS in internal medicine/hospitalist practice
- POCUS in the intensive care unit
- Logistical issues in POCUS (credentialing, billing, image archival and QA)
- Hands-on scanning (For the "hands-on scanning" breakout session we will need at least some participants who have equipment and someone to scan (if even yourselves) Ideally this equipment can connect remotely (such as the Butterfly IQ), although we will do our best to work with other set ups.
CME credits: 5.5 per day
Additional faculty with fellowship training in emergency ultrasound may assist in the hands-on stations.This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and Policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education through the joint providership of the American College of Emergency Physicians.
