Course details

We’re here to introduce GPs to the role of ultrasound in a community setting. It’s as simple as that. You’ll have the chance to be trained in the safe and accurate acquisition of ultrasound images by a team of experts. They’ll help you understand these images together with the medical history of the patient to take you a step further in making accurate decisions in patient management.

Our ultrasound course for doctors will give you an introduction to ultrasound anatomy and common pathology, focusing on the upper and lower abdomen of men and women. You’ll also see an introduction to Doppler, Musculoskeletal, and Superficial structures, and have the support of hospital sonographers during all practical workshops.

Be a part of two days packed with lectures, demonstrations, and guided hands-on experience with real patients. Covering ultrasound physics, equipment controls, quality assurance, and the ever important safety aspects, you’ll come away brimming with new information. See the full timetable in the accordions below.
