The EDE bootcamp is an intense 4 day hands-on workshop using dozens of live human models that participants will practice scanning. The exams are designed for participants to obtain full independent practitioner certification at the end of the course. There will be new models each day allowing you an opportunity to practice your hands-on skills on many different people. Day 1 will be a teaching day, Days 2 & 3 will be spent scanning, and Day 4 will be the exam day.
Access to the online mandatory pre-course will be sent to participants approximately 4 weeks prior to the bootcamp. Please make sure you all complete it before arrival on the first day. The pre-course is a critical component for being successful at the bootcamp. It is suggested to schedule a minimum of 10 hours to complete the pre-course.
This will be including only transabdominal views of first trimester obstetrics. Only courses held in Regina include both transabdominal and transvaginal views due to the unique and sensitive nature of the exams we have identified one site for this appropriate teaching. If you wish to be trained in transvaginal scanning please register for a Regina course.
