2016 Canadian Resuscitative Ultrasound Course – A Resounding Success

26 Aug

With 72 learners, 25 faculty and 2.5 days of high intensity, resuscitative ultrasound training, the 2016 CRUS course outdid itself even this year.  In addition to the usual features of the course like a flipped classroom curriculum (eliminating lectures altogether), 5 hours a day of practical training and a 2:1 learner to trainer bedside ratio, this course offered a new general simulation station (ultrasound integrated, of course), star studded local, national and international faculty and a showcase of the newest and most innovative ultrasound techniques and equipment.  Also, this year, lunchtime Kahoot sessions and an optional third day was added to address the growing interest in learning advanced echocardiographic techniques to be applied at the point-of-care were exciting additions to our program.

A huge thank you to all those learners, faculty, vendors and staff (esp the CSTAR staff and Rebecca Rondinelli) for making this a memorable experience!

This scale of course can only happen once a year so mark your calendars for the 2017 course which will take place on August 17 and 18 2017.  Keep tabs on this website for announcements or, if you would like to be emailed when course registration for 2017 opens, please email Tammy Mills at tammy.mills@lhsc.on.ca

Critical Care Ultrasound Course 2013 a Great Success

25 Aug

The 2013 Critical Care Ultrasound course was a tremendous success.  This 2 day course that took place over Aug 22-23 at CSTAR at University Hospital was regarded as the most successful course to date.  The sold out course lead 36 participants through lung and pleural ultrasound, vascular access and a full day of critical care echocardiography.  The course benefited from a deep roster of extremely talented instructors that allowed to provide a 2:1 participant to faculty ratio.  We are already planning for next year’s course – mark your calendar for August 21-22, 2014!  See some pictures from this year’s course below.
