About Gulfcoast Ultrasound Institute

Since 1985, Gulfcoast Ultrasound Institute, Inc. has been a respected leader in continuing medical education (CME) dedicated to the diagnostic ultrasound profession.

Live from St. Pete Beach (Florida), select locations around the country, or from your location as an Onsite Education Course! Gulfcoast Ultrasound Institute (with their permanent facility in St. Pete Beach, Florida) has conducted hundreds of courses of various specialties for over 28 years. Gulfcoast Ultrasound Institute has hosted over 31,216 physicians, sonographers, and other medical professionals who have attended the programs, and has awarded over 406,080 CME credits to participants worldwide!

Courses usually have comprehensive lectures taught by leading industry experts followed by an interactive hands-on scan lab, where attendees can practice what they learned with a 3:1 or less student to instructor ratio. The hands-on instructors are registered physicians and/or sonographers with an expert level of experience specific to the medical professional’s needs. Most courses also use a pre and post course polling session, using an innovative Audience Response System (ARS). The polling results instantly show the overall improvement of the group after the program, or will show where areas of improvement need to be addressed. No one will leave a program disappointed.

  • Abdominal, Family Medicine, and Primary Care Ultrasound Training
