  • Getting started in ultrasound online module
  • eFAST online module
AND 3 hours of 1-on-1 training
  • either with us in Melbourne or
  • over 3 one hour virtual ultrasound education sessions delivered in real-time online – wherever you are.

The choice is yours.

  • Use ultrasound system controls to optimise imaging for accurate diagnosis
  • Develop proficiency in probe manipulation to efficiently acquire diagnostic images
  • Describe the limitations and clinical integration of the eFAST ultrasound examination
  • Apply the eFAST protocol to conduct a systematic ultrasound assessment of a trauma patient
