Each didactic lecture is immediately followed by extensive scanning time with instructors to re-enforce teaching points. A small student to instructor ratio provides increased hands-on scanning and individualized instruction. The following subjects will be covered in detail:

Ultrasound Physics

Basic Scanning Principles

Basic Upper Extremity Blocks

Basic Lower Extremity Blocks
