July 10th marked the third iteration of the ever-popular POCUS Introductory Course, hosted by the Division of Emergency Medicine.
Featuring multi-disciplinary attendees from Emergency Medicine (CCFP, FRCP and Peds), General Surgery, Vascular Surgery and Family Medicine, the scan-packed day was a great success. This year brought some new pre-course material and a revised format geared towards maximizing hands-on-probe time. Helmed by Dr. Behzad Hassani and Dr. Mirza Baig, our new Course Directors led a fun filled, education packed day for 28 new POCUS users with an industry-leading 2:1 student:instructor ratio.
A huge thank you to the organizing team, our Faculty Instructors and of course our models (who each endured dozens upon dozens of scans). Without all of this help the course would not be the annual success it has become.
Stay tuned for updates for our upcoming courses.
