The Denver Society of Hospital Medicine Point-of-Care Ultrasound Course is designed to allow participants to gain knowledge and skill in POCUS image acquisition, interpretation and integration into clinical decision-making. Live demonstrations, interactive case reviews, and didactics will complement hours of hands-on practice sessions.

The workshop is designed to maximize the participant’s time practicing ultrasound skills on live models. The participant groups will have a 3:1 ratio of participants to experienced instructors who utilize POCUS in their hospital-based practices. The training curriculum will focus on the highest yield POCUS exams for generalist providers caring for hospitalized patients. Interactive didactic sessions will underscore how POCUS can be applied to many common clinical scenarios that arise on the general medicine wards. Participants will learn to obtain images of the heart, lungs, abdominal organs, and vascular structures and practice interpretation of normal and abnormal images with discussion of how to appropriately integrate POCUS findings into clinical decision-making. Participants will also learn best practices of ultrasound-guided techniques for bedside procedures such as thoracentesis, central venous access, lumbar puncture, and paracentesis.  Please see the course syllabus for further details.

Completion of this 2-day course can be applied toward SHM certificate of completion and participants will receive 16 CME credits

Cost: $1,600
