The ACSEP is proud to announce that in partnership with our Ultrasound sponsor Sonosite, we will be repeating this year’s successful Ultrasound workshops following the 2017 Annual ACSEP Scientific Conference. Again, we will be running a Beginners Ultrasound session, and for those more familiar with the machines and who use them regularly in clinical practice, a Musculosketal Ultrasound for Sport and Exercise Physicians Workshop, again to be run by world renowned Australian ultrasonographer, Stephen Bird.
This Musculoskeletal Ultrasound for Sport and Exercise Physician Workshop will run over a day and a half from 8.30am Monday February 13th to 12.00pm Tuesday February 14th, at the Surfers Paradise Marriott Hotel, the Conference venue. The Workshop is strictly limited to 20 places to ensure an intimate teaching environment using Sonosite machines, with lots of hands on experience in not only diagnostic imaging but also interventional techniques. We exceeded capacity last year well before the conference, so secure your position as soon as possible. The cost of the day and half course is $1200, which also includes course work provided as electronic pdf notes, just prior to the workshop, to support the program. Registration for the Musculosketal Ultrasound for Sport and Exercise Physicians Workshop is via the conference website. The Workshop program can be found here.
In addition to this, the ACSEP will be offering a free morning beginners workshop for all delegates new to ultrasound and keen to learn more about ultrasound imaging basics in preparation for using them at their training practices. This session will again be run by our sponsors Sonosite. This will run from 9am-12pm on Monday February 14th. Delegates can register for this again through the National Office (firstname.lastname@example.org)
We look forward to many of you being involved in these excellent workshops at the conference.
