The EDE workshop 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.
In addition to the EDE course materials it is recommended that you FULLY read and review the CPOCUS curriculum as well as reviewing the positive images that are available to you once you have logged in and activated your membership. You will be tested on the CPOCUS curriculum for your written, practical and visual exams.
Access to the online mandatory pre-course will be sent to participants approximately 4 weeks prior to the workshop. 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.
Unique for the Bahrain course, we would replace first-trimester obstetrics modules with fluid status/IVC (Inferior Vena Cava) and ultrasound-guided IV access modules. We believe this has better practical application for the scope of Emergency Medicine in the Gulf Region.
