Course History

Color Flow CarotidThe Emergency Ultrasound Course was first given in May of 1998 in Charleston. Since then the course has now been presented to over 615 different hospital staffs in multiple countries. The course has also undergone multiple updates to keep up with this rapidly changing technology. In 1999 the course moved from the initial three day format to the current two day format based on recommendations of students that had taken the course. The current format has been very well received. In 2000 we added the one day Trauma Ultrasound Course directed primarily at emergency physicians and surgeons who wanted training in fast Examinations.

The course faculty has also expanded over the last eight years. Initially consisting of just three faculty members, The Emergency Ultrasound Course now has over 20 faculty members from some of the top teaching institutions in the country. Many hold or have held national leadership positions in the field of emergency ultrasound. This high quality faculty allows us to bring you the best course available today.

The Course Directors, Patrick Hunt, MD, MBA, FACEP and Tom Cook, MD, FACEP are nationally recognized and experienced sonographers, and with the assistance of the faculty they have created a tremendous CME experience.
