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 years, all lectures will be held in english. Via interactive video conference, students from many different venues will be able to participate in the lectures, while the hands-on sessions will be held locally by student peer teachers.
