About the Meeting:

This year’s meeting is dedicated entirely to perioperative point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS). Point-of-Care ultrasound (POCUS) is the bedside utilization of ultrasound, in real-time, to aid in the diagnosis and treatment of patients. Image acquisition from POCUS utilization by anesthesiologists involves the assessment of multiple organs in different perioperative situations. This skill is becoming a standard in anesthesiology training and expands our training as perioperative leaders. This CME event has two components for your convenience. After breakfast, the first portion will be a three-hour didactic session with regional and national experts (3 CME credits) followed by lunch.

Following lunch, there will be a three-hour hands-on POCUS skills session (3 CME credits) with our speakers and regional experts.

Please be sure to register early as space is limited for the skills portion.

At the meeting, you will ALSO receive:

  • Complimentary breakfast and lunch
  • Free, convenient parking
  • Complimentary admission to explore the Museum of Flight until 5:00 PM
  • 6 hours toward your CME requirements (up to 3 CME credits for AM session &  3 CME credits for PM session)
