Testimonials from Past Participants

“I loved the course. It was intense but very well designed, hands-on and relevant.”

“I feel safer in the ER, particularly in remote areas.”

“Thanks so much for pioneering this course! I think it was ideal for me as someone already having access to and moderate comfort with ultrasound to take it to a significantly greater skill and confidence level. Hoping we can bring the course back for some more topics in the near future!”

“The local, relevant and friendly delivery makes the learning so much more accessible.”

“I don't regret for a minute having taken the POCUS course. It has been instrumental in my confidence with the ultrasound and I am already seeing the benefits of using ultrasound in my practice.”

“I have much more confidence using the point of care ultrasound in practice. Previously, I would look at it sitting around and think, ‘it would be nice to know how to use that right about now’. Now I confidently wheel it over and start scanning.”

“My confidence has vastly improved and I can make more rapid decisions regarding care.”

“Knowing my peer group is integrating pocus into practice increases my confidence to expand my indications for POCUS.”
