If you're a member with an interest in ultrasound training, this two-day practical course is for you.

Delivered by convenors Dr Anna Ciechomska and Mhairi Brandon, Ultrasound for Rheumatology Practice is designed to help you develop the ability to scan peripheral joints, provide a comprehensive review of regional musculoskeletal through ultrasound, develop your clinical and technical ultrasound knowledge.

Taught in small groups with plenty of opportunity to gain hands-on experience, each module will include standard machine-craft core knowledge and will be supported by online learning before and after the face-to-face course.

This blended learning programme aims to support you in your lifelong learning. The modules are:

  • Ultrasound in inflammatory arthritis (hands and feet)

  • An introduction to the use of ultrasound in hot swollen joint

This course is suitable for delegates with both basic and intermediate scanning experience.
