Licensed Ultrasound Courses

Focused ultrasound examinations in the critical care setting have become an extension of the clinical assessment because of their rapid, precise detection capabilities.

Bring the realistic training needed to perform point-of-care ultrasound to your institution with any of SCCM’s three licensed critical care ultrasound courses:
  • Critical Care Ultrasound: Adult
  • Critical Care Ultrasound: Pediatric and Neonatal
  • Advanced Critical Care Ultrasound: Adult
Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to demonstrate a foundation of ultrasound knowledge; practice acquisition of high-quality images via hands-on exercises; and demonstrate image interpretation and utilization of ultrasound as a diagnostic tool.

To license any of SCCM’s three ultrasound licensed courses, the course site must purchase a license and pay a learner fee for each participant. This includes:
  • Presentations with speaker notes and instructions for running the skill stations
  • Administrative and supplemental materials for the course
  • A copy of Comprehensive Critical Care Ultrasound textbook for each participant
  • A certificate of attendance or successful completion for each participant
  • Support from SCCM’s Licensed Course Team to help secure SCCM-approved faculty and plan the course
