Critical Care Ultrasound Course

The Critical Care Ultrasound course is designed for critical care physicians and advance practice providers (APPs), and includes practical applications in vascular, pleural, thoracic, and abdominal ultrasonography and echocardiography. The course focuses on hands-on applications.

  • Evaluate pleural, abdominal, and vascular access.
  • Interpret image-based clinical cases.
