// REMPOCUS - Remote/ Expedition Medicine: Point of Care Ultrasound (TM)
The first in a series of Ultrasound courses to introduce the user to hand held Ultrasound equipment as an additional diagnostic and imaging device when operating in remote areas.
The Introduction to Pre-Hospital Trauma Ultrasound Course is ideal for Paramedics, Foundation and Core Training Doctors, and Trainee Practitioners interested in PHEM, who haven’t yet undergone formal ultrasound training. It’s also a fantastic refresher for clinicians who want to become more confident in their basic emergency ultrasound skills.
The course is aimed at remote area medical practitioners and is aimed at harnessing the rapidly evolving (and increasingly affordable) hand portable technologies available or emerging on to the market, providing another diagnostic tool for the remote area medic.
