Why should you follow this hands-on course?
Advanced diagnostic ultrasound of the extremity joints provides clinicians with the ability to visualize and assess joint structures in real-time, aiding in the diagnosis and management of musculoskeletal conditions. This technique allows for accurate identification of joint pathology, such as synovitis, effusion, or erosion, and can guide joint aspirations, injections, or interventions. Learning advanced MSK ultrasound skills provides professionals with a valuable tool to improve patient outcomes, increase practice efficiency and revenue, and enhance professional satisfaction. The SonoSkills course not only provides high-quality training but also offers a chance to meet peers from around the world and explore the beauty of Amsterdam and The Netherlands.

What exactly is the included eLearning?
This course is blended, meaning a combination of online and onsite learning. Blended learning is an additional element to classroom teaching and one which supports existing teaching practices. It combines many of the best elements of face-to-face teaching (personalized learning and social interaction) while allowing greater variety and flexibility than a traditional classroom setup, responding to the needs of the modern learner.
Over 33 hours of content are available to you on-demand before, during, and after the course for 6 months. A €900 value included in your registration!

Included in this course is our book: Musculoskeletal Ultrasound of the Extremity Joints: Technical Scanning Guidelines. A €140 value included in your registration!

Who can participate in this course?
Any professionals who are able to legally scan MSK conditions under their countries, state and/or national law such as: Radiologists, rheumatologists, orthopedic surgeons, sports physicians, general practitioners, sonographers, physiotherapists and all primary and secondary healthcare professionals interested in improving their diagnostic capabilities and insight in treating dysfunctions of the musculoskeletal system.

Having followed a foundational MSK ultrasound course is a hard prerequisite. It is necessary that you completed a foundational MSK ultrasound course prior to attending this course to maximize the learning of important concepts. If you can't meet the prerequisite we can help you with getting trained hands-on, on a foundational level. In that case we recommend following the SonoSkills foundational MSK ultrasound boot camp of all extremity joints.

Where is the course being held?
As the capital of our nation, we extend a warm welcome to Amsterdam. This city offers a one-of-a-kind mix of history, culture, and contemporary allure. Its picturesque canals, world-renowned museums, and lively nightlife ensure there's always something to see and do. Whether you're interested in visiting the Anne Frank House or going for a leisurely bike ride, Amsterdam has something to offer everyone. This destination is ideal for a romantic getaway, an adventure-packed trip, or just some time to unwind and relax.
