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.
This course will include first-trimester pregnancy (transabdominal) with measurement of the fetal crown–rump length.
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.
