4 May – 6 May
Hands-on Workshop in Vascular Ultrasound – Barcelona
The ESVS Academy invites you to Bellvitge University Hospital for the upcoming Hands-on Workshop in Vascular Ultrasound.
4-6 May 2022
The course provides a thorough grounding in the clinical skills to work in vascular ultrasound.
During the course, participants are presented an intensive series of short lectures focussed on technical aspects of the different US examinations. Lecturers explain the examinations while performing one in the same room on selected patients.
Classroom teaching is supplemented by sessions at the Vascular Laboratory, where participants have the opportunity to practice their skills under supervision on patients with relevant disease and on silicone models for US guided puncture. Hands-on sessions last 5 hours each day. (4 participants /1 tutor/ 1 station)
Before attending the course, participants will have access to an on-line blended learning module that will introduce them to the basic knowledge of ultrasound and the standards of the different examinations.
The e-learning module includes:
• all presentations of previous editions.
• a quiz that helps to review basic concepts of US physics, the anatomy of commonly examined areas and most important diagnostic criteria.
• a forum open to questions from all participants.
• a survey about previous US experience that will help us to prepare the groups for the workshop.
This preparatory module is intended as a tool to save time in lectures, allowing more time for hands-on practice. It will open 15 days before the course and close one month after it. Registered participants will receive access instructions before April 20th .
The workshop is addressed mainly to novice trainees and to those willing to prepare for the CCVUS examination.
The registration fee is €750 for ESVS members and €800 for non-members. It includes course materials, coffees, lunches and a course dinner on 4th May. Transport, accommodation and additional meals are not included.
