Our ultrasound course is geared towards all providers who are interested in learning to perform clinically relevant ultrasound examinations.

Evidence Based

It is important to understand the evidence behind point of care ultrasound, in order to apply your findings to the patient at hand. Specifically, we focus on when ultrasound is enough, and when it falls short. 

The Venue


This year, we will be hosting our conference at Stone Brewing: World Bistro & Garden at Liberty Station. We believe in creating an ultrasound course that is not only educational but also a memorable experience - thus it is important for us to provide a venue with exceptional food and beverage. We promise you will be well fed, plus you can grab a world-class beer whenever you’d like. Does learning ultrasound get any better than that?
