Point of Care Ultrasound (POCUS) Training
POCUS has revolutionized the field of medicine, in resource limited settings where reliable diagnostic imaging is scarce or absent, it has been even more impactful.
With the help of needs assessments and local collaboration MedGlobal has implemented site-specific POCUS training programs in Yemen, Gaza, Colombia, Bangladesh and Ukraine, focusing on a variety of content areas such as Lung Ultrasound, basic Cardiac ultrasound, the FAST Exam for Trauma, and Basic Obstetric ultrasound.
MedGlobal presents a one day course in Point of Care Ultrasound that will showcase our POCUS training programs as well as introduce some of these basic ultrasound concepts (with the exception of Obstetric Ultrasound) with an integrated learning experience including both lecture and hands-on training. The intended audience is for novice users however more skilled ultrasound users are welcome to join as this will be a wonderful way to get to know how we implement our training programs in the field as well.
