Hardfacts

The 5th Summer School for Ultrasound will take place from October 25 -28 2018
Location: Hörsaalzentrum Universitätsklinikum Graz

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.

#FOAMed

We have made it our mission to share our teaching materials and resources in the spirit of “Free Open Access Meducation” – free to use and open for further improvement. With the Summer School alone, we have reached about 50,000 people with our live-stream.

40 active student peer teachers

are currently contributing to the project voluntarily. Each year, we train about 15 new tutors according to a curriculum authored by us.

Summer School

Since 2014, we are organising a Summer School for Ultrasound once a year.
Thanks to an elaborate concept, a high amount of hands-on time, outstanding speakers and the possibility of a participation via video conference or live stream, it has gained international prominence.

More than 700 participants

were able to attend our courses, and have evaluated them very positively.
The high demand for our courses motivates us to enable a participation for as many students as possible.

Supporters

We are an independent initiative. But only the generous support of the ÖH Med Graz, KAGES, the Medical University of Graz and the company MIDES from Graz allowed us to get to where we are today.

Founded in 2013

by a small group of students, who acquired their first skills with an ultrasound device and YouTube videos in a living room under a palm tree. Since then, the project has evolved through great personal effort of students and supporting physicians.

Innovative didactics

A range of different teaching materials and resources are available for repetition and to clarify theoretical contents and demonstrate anatomical relations.

Focusing on applicable skills

While the participants are examining each other, practical skills, such as device operation, transducer handling and image orientation are imparted.

Free of charge

This course is offered free of charge and is made possible by the voluntary work of our peer teachers.
