“This course is extremely valuable to increasing competency in POCUS, which will be essential in anesthesia moving forward.”
“It's a thorough and well-organized course that helps build the skill and confidence to implement POCUS into one's daily practice of anesthesia. ”
"I have already recommended this course to many colleagues to supplement the POCUS curriculum in our residency program."
"Over the past two decades, diagnostic point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) has emerged as a useful bedside tool in perioperative care. However, many practicing anesthesiologists are reluctant to practice this skill set because of a lack of standardized training and/or due to push-back from hospital privileging committees. We hope that this Certificate Program will help anesthesiologists surmount these two obstacles."
