Focused ultrasound examinations in the critical care setting have become an extension of the clinical assessment because of their rapid, precise detection capabilities. The Society of Critical Care Medicine's (SCCM) hosted critical care ultrasound courses combine expert-developed lectures with hands-on skill stations to bring the realistic training needed to perform and interpret point-of-care ultrasound to your institution.

The courses are available as licensed courses in a live, site-hosted format for institutions to provide training for healthcare professionals.
To license any of SCCM’s three critical care ultrasound 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 Licensing Team to help secure SCCM-approved faculty and plan the course
Course sites also have the option to provide participants with an on-demand version of the course, for continued learning after attending the licensed course. In the on-demand version, videos of every session from SCCM’s most recent ultrasound course are provided in a searchable format, accessible electronically.

To receive the certificate of successful completion, course participants must attend all didactic lectures, successfully complete all skill stations, and achieve a score of 70% or higher on the posttest.
