Course Credits: Earn up to 15 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ and AAFP Prescribed Credits
Point of Care Ultrasound is a two-day course.
Decreasing costs of equipment, improved portability, and improved imaging and technology are a few of the reasons physicians need to learn office, hospitalist and emergency point of care ultrasound. Musculoskeletal ultrasound will also be discussed. Having ultrasound available at point of care in these settings may improve and streamline diagnostic skills, improve patient care and satisfaction, and improve procedural skills. Just as listening to the heart sounds with a stethoscope was "foreign" when learners started as medical students, performing or interpreting ultrasound can be confusing. This course will discuss how to begin and open a new world of diagnostics at the point of care for patients in the office.
