Because the hands-on experience is such an integral part of a successful ultrasound training experience, Gulfcoast Ultrasound courses never exceed a 3:1 participant to instructor ratio during the scanning sessions. The hands-on scanning portion of the Adult Echocardiography Live 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 Adult Echocardiography Live 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.

Gulfcoast Ultrasound Institute’s Blended Adult Echocardiography 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 Adult Echocardiography 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 Institute 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.
