Summer School

for Ultrasound

The 4th Summer School for Ultrasound

in Graz

September 21-24

The IVth Summer School for Ultrasound will take place from September 21 to 24.

First steps with sonography…

The course offers participants an opportunity to get in touch with sonography based on focused ultrasound protocols.

Lectures by clinical experts

The lectures are held by medical doctors from all around the world who are generously sharing their clinical experience and expertise.

High share of hands-on sessions

Hands-on sessions in groups of five students, overseen by two student peer teachers, in a friendly atmosphere, make up more than half of the overall course.

Learning objectives…

…are for participants to understand the indications and limitations for the focused use of diagnostic ultrasound, gaining the necessary hands-on skills for performing the exam and making the correct decision for further treatment based on the findings.

Going international…

As in the previous year, all lectures will be held in English. Via an interactive video conference, students from locations will be able to participate in the lectures, while the hands-on sessions will be held locally at many different venues by student peer teachers.


In the spirit of #FOAMed, all lectures will be live-streamed and later available as videos on demand. Scripts on all topics covered and both technical and didactic manuals for local organizers will be provided – free of charge, right here on this website.

During the Summer…

…updated scripts will be provided, just like the videos of the previous Summer School in 2016 being an ideal support for trying out the ultrasound machine during clinical electives.

It’s getting serious…

In September, 60 local students will have the opportunity to participate in the Summer School for Ultrasound in Graz. At the same time, even more students in other locations will join the event via video conference.
