Hands-On Urologic Ultrasound (2022)

Linthicum, MD US
September 17, 2022

This course is designed to provide urologists and urology residents with the knowledge and basic skills necessary for performing urologic ultrasound. This one-day offering combines online training and testing (pre-course) with onsite, hands-on instruction in kidney, bladder, prostate and scrotal ultrasound. Participants are evaluated by didactic testing and direct observation by faculty members to determine if they have met the course objectives. Attendees who demonstrate the hands-on skills and who pass the didactic tests, both online and on-site, will receive a CME Level 2 certificate. Proficiency and facility in performing specific ultrasound examinations will be achieved by subsequently applying these acquired skills in clinical practice.

*This is a one day, semi-private course.
