New Course – Introduction to Ultrasound in Low Resource Settings (20-24 May 2013)

News article 4 Mar 2013

This course has been introduced following requests from many students over the last 4 years.  We have designed this course for Medical Doctors who are going to work in low resource settings in the next 6 months with access to an Ultrasound machine.  This course is very practical and hands-on and is limited to 16 participants.  You will be working on a variety of ultrasound scanners, including internal obstetric scanners.  Also, we aim to continue support in the field after the course with a secure website for referrals and case studies.
