Hands-on Courses

101HO - Hands-on Urologic Ultrasound

Thursday, May 17
7:30 AM - 5:00 PM
Location: MCC WEST, 3008

This course is designed to provide urologists and urology residents with the knowledge and basic skills necessary for performing urologic ultrasound. This one-day offering combines online training and testing (pre-course) with on-site, hands-on instruction in kidney, bladder, prostate and scrotal ultrasound. Participants are evaluated by didactic testing and direct observation by faculty members to determine if they have met the course objectives. Attendees who demonstrate the hands-on skills and who pass the didactic tests, both online and on-site, will receive a CME Level 2 certificate. Proficiency and facility in performing specific ultrasound examinations will be achieved by subsequently applying these acquired skills in clinical practice.

With the establishment of the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM) Accreditation Program for Ultrasound in the Practice of Urology and the trend toward 3rd party payers requiring documentation of training, the AUA Hands-On Urologic Ultrasound courses provide an avenue for urologists to meet the training guidelines for the performance of ultrasound in the practice of urology.
