Our Ultrasound workshop has been designed to assist Rural Generalists, General Practitioners, Nurse Practitioners, and others who may require an introduction to the use of Ultrasound in emergency practice.

We have developed our workshops to cover more common situations that may arise in the Emergency Department, in practice, or basic anaesthetics.  Content may vary course to course dependent on the particular skills of the clinical facilitator.

A major feature of these workshops is the 'hands-on' practice using live patient models, guided by highly experienced clinical application specialists, sonographers and clinicians.  The portable equipment/ultrasound units used in the workshop are provided by SonoSite Fujifilm.
