SEMPA Ultrasound Course

Huntington Beach, CA

November 8-10, 2019

 

  • Overview
    • Limited to 50 participants
    • 1:5 faculty to student ratio
    • Hands-on scanning of live models
    • Simulation technology incorporated
    • Lots of practice time
    • Earn CME towards your EM-CAQ
    • Faculty from emergency ultrasound fellowship programs
    • Learn the core applications to emergency ultrasound
    • Meals included
    • Time to enjoy all Huntington Beach has to offer

    This course is designed to be a "scan and surf" adventure with the education ending at 2 pm each day so participants have time to enjoy the location. With so much to do in Huntington Beach and the hotel offering a Beach Amenities Program, the SEMPA Ultrasound Course is the perfect balance of education and fun!

    The course will provide point-of-care ultrasound training to physician assistants working in emergency medicine. Didactic sessions will focus on concise, useful information, images, and video. Most importantly, participants will have the opportunity to learn the necessary skills through hands-on teaching and practice on models under the guidance of experienced faculty and sonographers.

    Upon completion of this program participants should be able to:

    • List the standard views or “windows” for each of the six primary areas of emergency ultrasound - trauma, aorta, biliary, cardiac, pelvic and procedural applications

    • Accurately interpret point of care ultrasounds

    • Demonstrate the standard views or “windows” for each of the six primary areas of emergency ultrasound - trauma, aorta, biliary, cardiac, pelvic and procedural applications
