The ACEP Emergency Ultrasound Management Course was held on Wednesday, October 7, 2020
The 2020 EUMC course zoomed into the virtual educational environment, with the goals of providing participants with amazing lecture content, answers to their management questions and the ability to network with Emergency Ultrasound leaders. The course will follow the “Simulive” model, with recorded narrated lectures and live question/answer/discussions. The morning was divided into two tracks, Core and Advanced, with a small group breakout session. The afternoon session contained lectures relevant to both tracks and with content pertinent to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Is an emergency ultrasound program something that you have wanted to implement in your department but have been unable to achieve?
Are you a Clinical Ultrasound Fellow preparing to graduate and need management expertise?
Then the ACEP Emergency Ultrasound Management Course Core Track is just what you are looking for! This track is designed for those who are starting a new program, or want some advice for improving an existing program. Core Track topics include: the role of the ultrasound director, specifics of machine purchase and maintenance, credentialing and a very thorough explanation of billing. The speakers are national experts successful in implementing emergency ultrasound programs and small breakout group discussions will cover a wide range of topics, so bring your questions and challenges from your own institutions. This course is not about how to perform ultrasound exams.
Attention US fellowship directors and US fellows: This track covers the Administrative topics of the Core Curriculum of Clinical Ultrasonography.
Are you an Ultrasound Program Director interested in expanding your program?
Are you tasked with the creation of a hospital wide ultrasound program or struggling with multihospital group issues?
Then the ACEP Emergency Ultrasound Management Course Advanced Track could provide you the answers you need! The advanced course is for ultrasound directors with existing programs who have attended the ACEP Emergency Ultrasound Management Course at least once and have an interest in expansion and maturation of their program. Advanced Track topics include improving reimbursement, program accreditation, and program expansion beyond the ED with a special focus on improving ultrasound education at all levels. Additionally, small breakout group discussions will cover additional topics, so bring your questions and challenges from your own institutions. This course will take your program to the next level! This course is not about how to perform ultrasound exams.
Attention to US directors: Accreditation and topics related will be discussed in this track.
The Emergency Ultrasound Management Course was started as part of an Emergency Ultrasound Section Grant. The first course was October 16, 2004 in San Francisco.
