Live Courses & Blended Courses
Regularly scheduled live courses are held at our state of the art facility in the heart of downtown St. Petersburg, Florida. Gulfcoast Ultrasound Institute live courses offer comprehensive training and feature a mixture of didactic lectures being presented by leading industry expert faculty, interactive case studies, and hands-on scanning.
Because the hands-on experience is such an integral part of a successful training experience, GCUS courses never exceed a 3:1 participant to instructor ratio during the scanning sessions. The hands-on scanning is conducted on live models and inanimate phantoms are also available for ultrasound guided procedure training. You will also receive scanning checklists and case logs signed by our instructors for your use (if needed) for hospital credentialing, etc.
Additionally included in your course tuition is lifetime access to the digital course syllabus which affords you with the ability to highlight, bookmark, and make any annotations for your use as a great reference tool in the future. While at the live course, take advantage of our GCUS product library and “check-out” a product to use overnight or during lunch/breaks.
Our faculty are always eager to interact personally with our participants to answer any questions and share their wealth of Regional Anesthesia knowledge with our course participants. All GCUS courses are approved for AMA PRA Category 1 credit with select courses also offering ACEP, ABIM MOC, and ASRT credit(s) (See specific course page for details) and you will receive a certificate upon completion of each course.
Blended courses offered by GCUS also offer a comprehensive training experience, but in a more flexible, self-paced format. Gulfcoast Ultrasound Blended courses include 15 months unlimited access to the applicable Online Course (which would cover the same topics as the corresponding traditional live course) plus a Hands-on scanning workshop at the GCUS facility.
The Online Courses include structured modules with video lectures, case presentations and post-module quizzes. Upon completion of the Online Course, you will attend a regularly scheduled hands-on workshop (the length of the workshop depends on the particular course you are enrolled in, but are usually 1-2 days (6-12 total hours).
For the most effective learning experience with this format, completion of the Online Course is required before attending the hands-on workshop. This format is also a popular for group education (Custom onsite training by GCUS is also available)
Live webinars are lectures that are streamed live on the internet during the actual time that lecture is being presented. From time to time, GCUS will offer a live webinar on particular Registry Review topics (see below for any upcoming scheduled webinars).
You must be able to watch the video online (accessible from any device with internet) at the advertised times.
Learners will have the ability to email in questions for the speaker to answer as well.
Can’t watch the webinar during the scheduled date/time? GCUS will usually record and make these available as training videos. If you see a live webinar topics that you would like to be notified when the training video is format is available for purchase, please call Gulfcoast Ultrasound and one of our CME Coordinators make sure you are notified.
Gulfcoast Ultrasound Online Courses are a perfect fit for the medical professional who either already has a source of hands-on training available to them or just needs a refresher course to stay on top of the most current practices.
Online Course topics are structured off of the same curriculum and lectures as a GCUS Live Course (just without the hands-on training).
Individuals who enroll in Online Courses will have 12 months UNLIMITED access to the content which consists of video lectures, case studies, and post-module quizzes.
Participants will also be able to print their CME Certificates.
Online Courses are accessible from ANY DEVICE with internet access (Computer, Laptop, Tablet or Mobile Device).
