The use of ultrasound for frontline diagnostics and procedural aids is becoming increasingly common. The Hands-On Ultrasound Symposium for Frontline Providers is designed to provide basic ultrasound training to doctors, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and physical therapists.


The interactive course format is comprised of engaging lectures and hands-on training sessions to provide attendees with the knowledge and skills necessary to implement basic pulmonary, cardiovascular, abdominal/renal, and musculoskeletal ultrasound in everyday practice.

Morning didactic sessions will explore the basics of ultrasound including history, functionality, application, and knobology. Following the morning session, hands-on breakout sessions will provide attendees with the opportunity to learn and practice new skills on live patients with peer and expert feedback.

Topics Include:

  • History and basics of ultrasound outside of radiology
  • Knobology of the ultrasound
  • Hands-on training for pulmonary, cardiovascular, abdominal/renal, and musculoskeletal ultrasound

Target Audience

  • Primary Care Physicians
  • Sports Medicine Physicians
  • Physician Assistants
  • Nurse Practitioners
  • Nurses
  • Allied Health Professionals
  • Physical Therapists

This course may also be of interest to physicians who practice in critical care and trauma, emergency medicine, family medicine, geriatrics, hospice and palliative medicine, internal medicine, orthopedics, pain medicine, pediatrics and adolescent medicine, physical medicine & rehabilitation, radiology, rheumatology, and physiatry.
