CPoCUS Independent Practitioner Certification Workshops

PoCUS East Point of Care Ultrasound Training is presenting high quality training in the core indications for point of care ultrasound (PoCUS) and the opportunity to successfully attain Independent Practitioner (IP) certification from the Canadian Point of Care Ultrasound Society (CPoCUS).

This intensive three-day workshop will give participants the opportunity to obtain all of the required observed scans PLUS complete the three-part examination series towards CORE Independent Practitioner certification with the Canadian Point of Care Ultrasound Society (formerly the Canadian Emergency Ultrasound Society). This includes the addition of basic lung (hemothorax and pneumothorax) certification. There will be many instructors, ultrasound machines and many models available while you are here. 

A CPoCUS approved introductory ultrasound course is strongly recommended prior to taking this workshop but is not required.

Space is limited so register early.

Eligible for 25 Royal College Section 3 OR 60 CCFP Cert+ credits.

Registration fees are refundable (minus a $300 processing fee) up to one month prior to course dates. After this time, full course payments are non-refundable.
