LIVE COURSES (Live Lectures + Hands-On)
Regularly scheduled Abdominal Ultrasound Live Courses are held at our state of the art facility in the heart of downtown St. Petersburg, Florida. Gulfcoast Ultrasound Institute’s anesthesiology ultrasound live courses offer comprehensive training and feature a mixture of didactic lectures being presented by leading industry expert faculty, interactive case studies, and hands-on scanning.
Because the hands-on experience is such an integral part of a successful training experience, Gulfcoast Ultrasound Institute courses never exceed a 3:1 participant to instructor ratio during the scanning sessions. The hands-on scanning portion of the abdominal ultrasound courses is always conducted on pre-scanned and approved live models for maximum optimal views. You will also receive scanning checklists and case logs signed by our instructors for your use (if needed) for hospital credentialing, etc.
Additionally included in your abdominal ultrasound course tuition is lifetime access to the digital course syllabus which affords you with the ability to highlight, bookmark, and make any annotations for your use as a great reference tool in the future.
While at the live abdominal ultrasound course, take advantage of our Gulfcoast Ultrasound Institute product library and check out a product to use overnight, or during lunch/breaks during your course. Our faculty are always eager to interact personally with our participants to answer any questions and share their wealth of abdominal ultrasound knowledge with our course participants. All Gulfcoast Ultrasound Institute abdominal ultrasound courses are approved for AMA PRA Category 1 credits™ with select courses also offering ACEP, MOC, and ASRT credit(s). (See specific course page for details.) All course participants will receive a certificate upon completion at the end of each course.
BLENDED COURSES (Online Course + Hands-On)
The Abdominal Ultrasound Courses offered by Gulfcoast Ultrasound Institute also offer a comprehensive training experience, but in a combination of an online, self-paced course format. Gulfcoast Ultrasound Institute’s Blended Abdominal Ultrasound Courses include 15 months of unlimited access to the applicable Online Course (which would cover the same topics as the corresponding traditional live course) plus a Hands-on scanning workshop at the Gulfcoast Ultrasound facility.
The Abdominal Ultrasound Online Courses include structured modules with video lectures, case presentations and post-module quizzes. Upon completion of the Online Course, you will attend a regularly scheduled hands-on workshop (the length of the workshop depends on the particular course you are enrolled in, but most hands-on scanning workshops are usually 1-2 days (6-12 total hours).
For the most effective learning experience with this format, completion of the Online Course is required before attending the hands-on workshop. This education format is also a popular for group education and private hands on courses (Custom onsite training by Gulfcoast Ultrasound is also available).
Virtual Conferences are no longer the future of education but a necessity, and very likely part of the “new normal” in the world of CME. Gulfcoast Ultrasound Institute has been offering live web streamed CME courses for years, and are constantly striving to develop innovative and effective learning formats for all of our learners. We are excited to offer medical professionals around the world, a Virtual Conference platform that will allow you to attend Gulfcoast Ultrasound Live Courses of all specialties from the comfort and convenience of your home, while maintaining the interactive feel you would have if you were attending a live conference. When you register for a Virtual Conference, on the specific date(s) the conference occurs, you will gain access to the live streamed video lectures, printable course materials, AMA PRA Category 1™ Credits, and the ability to interact and ask questions to our expert faculty just as you would if you were here in person attending a live course. The only difference between a Live Course and a Virtual Conference is the Hands-on Training, which if needed, is always available at a later date either during a scheduled hands-on scanning workshop at Gulfcoast Ultrasound Institute, a private one-on-one hands-on session at Gulfcoast, or custom group onsite workshops at your facility. Virtual Conferences by Gulfcoast Ultrasound Institute are easy to use and available on any computer, or mobile device with an internet connection, giving you flexibility without sacrificing on the live conference learning experience many medical professionals prefer versus a self-directed online course.
See our schedule of Virtual Conferences on this page or on any of the specific ultrasound specialty pages on the Gulfcoast Ultrasound website. More Virtual Conference dates will continue to be added so check back for more offerings, or you can always contact our staff via the Website Chat Feature, at (727)363-4500 or firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions about our Virtual Conferences.
Private Hands-On Abdominal Ultrasound Courses are the ideal continuing medical education option for medical professionals that prefer to learn in a 1 on 1 educational environment, or the dates of a regularly scheduled course won’t work for them.
