The EDE bootcamp is an intense 4 day hands-on workshop with exams designed for participants to obtain full independent practitioner certification at the end of the course. There will be new models each day. Day 1 will be a teaching day, Days 2 & 3 will be spent scanning, and Day 4 will be the exam day. More details can be found in the EDE Core Bootcamp Outline.
Access to the online mandatory precourse will be sent to participants approximately 4 weeks prior to the bootcamp. The precourse is a critical component for being successful at the bootcamp. It is suggested to schedule a minimum of 10 hours to complete it. It is a mandatory requirement to be completed prior to arrival on the first 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.
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.
