The 2018 course has sold out.

The 2019 course will be held in July.

Why Attend?

As the use of point-of-care ultrasound in general medicine settings continues to grow, so does the need for high-quality training and education. To meet this need, the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM) has joined with the Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU), the American College of Physicians (ACP), and the Society of Ultrasound in Medical Education (SUSME) to present the Point-of-Care & General Medicine Ultrasound course in Portland, Oregon.

This course is designed to cover point-of-care ultrasound for generalists. Live demonstrations, hands-on experiences, simulations, and didactic lectures will be used to provide a comprehensive and in-depth look at how and where medical ultrasound can effectively be used in point-of-care and general medicine settings. The faculty have created an event that focuses on learning through the observation-practice-feedback model.  

We will ensure that you come away from the course with a well-founded grounding in the basic techniques including focused cardiac, lung, abdomen, DVT, musculoskeletal/soft tissue, and procedural ultrasound, and that these techniques lay the foundation for a safe and effective ultrasound practice.

We are very pleased to offer parallel inpatient and outpatient tracks on day 2 of our 2018 course, based on previous registrant feedback. The outpatient track will highlight musculoskeletal, soft tissue, and AAA screening, while the inpatient track will focus on ultrasound-guided invasive procedures, advanced cardiac, and hypotensive patient clinical scenarios/assessment.
