Point-of-Care Ultrasound (POCUS) Workshop
Location (on campus): UVM SIM Lab, Burlington, VT
January 30, 8:00am-12:00pm

Point-of-care ultrasound has emerged an important bedside tool in the management of acutely ill patients.  This workshop combines high-yield didactic sessions with hands-on training on live models. The pre-course starts with a review of the basics of ultrasound technology and then dives into the myriad of diagnostic ultrasound applications: focused cardiac ultrasound; evaluation of pleural effusions, pneumothorax, and ascites; evaluation for lower extremity deep venous thrombosis and case based learning.

The course will be ideal for both beginners and to refine ultrasound skills. Expected faculty to attendee ratio is 1:3. This workshop, will need a minimum of 8-10 attendees with the maximum set at 18-20 attendees, so sign up early!
