Hospitalist Procedures Course Description
In the last fifteen years, hospitalists have become much more prevalent in the care of inpatients and a hospitalist must be familar with a number of skills and procedures. Often, new hospitalists have a background in outpatient practices and they may not be as comfortable performing procedures. This course is an excellent refresher course for experienced physicians, residents, and other healthcare providers alike. In a group setting, individuals will learn about the techniques of various procedures, including the use of an ultrasound. In addition to the hands-on practice and lectures, the participants will be given examples of tools and order sets, and key articles will be provided for reference.
The following procedures will be taught using a combination of lecture, video, and hands-on practice with manikins and models. The participants will also get ample time to practice with an ultrasound on models and on each other. Discussion and use of the ultrasound in the procedures is designated with an asterisk (*). Models and ultrasounds will be available for use to practice throughout both days of the course.
