Why should you follow this hands-on boot camp?
Advanced knowledge and skills in MSK ultrasound of the shoulder region are essential for clinicians due to its relevance and popularity. Shoulder problems are common and represent one of the most affected joints in clinical practice. Shoulder sonography is the most relevant and popular topic in MSK ultrasound, providing a non-invasive and cost-effective diagnostic tool for shoulder pathologies. By mastering advanced techniques, clinicians can diagnose and treat shoulder conditions with greater accuracy and confidence. Staying at a foundational level won't cut it - investing in your education can help you become an expert in MSK ultrasound of the shoulder and enhance patient outcomes.

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. The videos will show lectures on (sono)anatomy, pathology and clinical examination. Furthermore, they will show case discussions, and splt-screen demo videos. A €515 value included in your registration! 

Who can participate in the boot camp?
Any MSK healthcare professional with a particular interest in the shoulder girdle. Think of radiologists, rheumatologists, sports physicians, general practitioners, physiotherapists and all other primary and secondary healthcare professionals interested in improving their diagnostic capabilities and insight in treating dysfunctions of the musculoskeletal system.
