Don't miss the EMPA event of the year!
Just curious if anyone has kept their certification after becoming a PA or current students still on the fence about doing the same. For those that are currently PA's, how's keeping your certification helped or hurt you? Are you planning to add the DCLS or other doctoral training in the future? This topic is very interesting to me, just entering PA school after being a MLS and I'm interested how those skills translate to direct patient care. Cheers!

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.

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