Advanced diagnostic MSK ultrasound of the extremity joints is highly relevant for all MSK professionals, providing them with a valuable tool for accurate diagnosis, intervention, and follow-up. This can greatly improve patient outcomes and satisfaction. Learning MSK ultrasound can enhance professionals' knowledge, skills, development, and career opportunities, as well as benefit their business. Moreover, attending a MSK ultrasound course can be a transformative experience, as it fundamentally changes the way professionals view anatomy and pathologies. Finally, it is a fun and social experience that provides opportunities to meet international peers and explore Amsterdam or 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 190 videos, totaling to 20 hours of content are available to you on-demand before, during, and after the course for 6 months. A €475 value included in your registration! 

Book
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 the boot camp?
