Comprehensive Longitudinal Curriculum

This program is offered to participants who have successfully completed the Weill Cornell HM-POCUS 5-day intensive introductory course.

The course consists of 9 half-day structured supervised scanning sessions of ultrasound models. Upon request, some of the scanning sessions can be supplemented/replaced by image review sessions. Participants who collect images for their portfolios are welcome to use the sessions to collect the needed studies. We would also be happy to give you feedback on your previously collected images and/or cases.

Sessions are offered monthly in 2 day blocks. Participants can sign-up for 1, 2 or 3 half-day sessions during each of the offered blocks. All of the sessions should be completed within 12 months of your class. Though not required, we recommend starting the course no later than 3 months after completing our 5-day class and spreading the sessions over as long of a period as possible.

The classes will be held at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell. For those in the area, one of the teaching blocks can be held at the participant’s institution, with instructors, and potentially models, traveling to your site. This will allow for the use of your scanning equipment.

As with our other courses, scanning attendee-to-instructor ratio will not exceed of 2-to-1.
