Overview

Registered Musculoskeletal (RMSK) Registry Review Online Course is designed to prepare the physician and clinician to successfully take the RMSK Ultrasound Registry exam. Upper and lower extremity joints are covered in great detail, along with two mock examinations. All presentations include anatomy/physiology, scan protocols and normal sonographic characteristics, pathology, integration of data and treatment/interventional techniques.

The RMSK Registry Review Online Course also provides a comprehensive review of Sonography Principles & Instrumentation (Physics) since 28% of the exam pertains to ultrasound physics. This online course is the ideal choice for examination preparation, plus reinforcement of interpretation skills to improve competence and confidence to perform and/or interpret MSK ultrasound examinations.

Additionally, the GCUS Registry Review PASS Guarantee offers you access to the online course version of your registry review program for an additional 90 days if you do not pass your registry exam after completing one of our review programs. Just send us a copy of your exam score (registry exam must be taken within six months of our review) and we’ll grant you a 90 day access extension to the online course version of the review.
