The SEMPA Ultrasound Course will provide you point-of-care ultrasound training. Focused, goal-directed ultrasound will be performed to answer specific clinical questions, which could change the next step in patient care. The course will also include didactic lectures, case presentations and hands-on skills labs to allow you to use ultrasound machines on both live human and simulation models. But, space is limited and the course always sells out, so register today to secure your spot for this exciting hands-on course! Learn more and register.
