In 1985, Gulfcoast Ultrasound Institute (GCUS Inc.) was established with the mission to provide an ultrasound continuing medical education platform to help medical professionals achieve their credentials and enhance their overall ultrasound knowledge. Today, a division of that mission is commonly referred to as registry review.
Over the past three decades of preparing participants to achieve both ARDMS and CCI registrations in multi-modality fields, GCUS has been leading the way in the education, transformation, and acceleration of ultrasound skills and understanding with the most comprehensive, flexible and successful registry review materials and courses on the market. GCUS combines traditional live seminars, online courses, and study materials for the ultimate educational options for registry success. All Gulfcoast Ultrasound Institute registry review programs, courses, webinars and products are approved for AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™.
Over the years we have established a full understanding of how valuable our participant’s time is, and that is why our entire team is 100% committed to offer the most comprehensive, easy to follow, most current registry review courses and products.
GCUS registry review courses and study products are designed to enhance and empower sonographers and physicians through established seminars and educational materials created by our expert faculty that we have assembled over three decades of education and training to guarantee your success. Make no mistake, the registry exams are very challenging and are often updated. These exams need proper and significant amount of focused review time. Whether you are relatively new to ultrasound, or a seasoned Sonographer our registry review options will help you achieve your dream of ultrasound certification. Our programs, courses and products are specifically designed to assist you in your preparation to pass these highly difficult exams on your first attempt.
GCUS is the leader in ultrasound review with an average exam success score of >98% in Physics, Abdominal, Adult Echo, Breast, Musculoskeletal /(MSKUS), OB/GYN, Vascular Technology, RPVI, Pediatric and Midwife Certificate. GCUS has been successfully preparing medical professionals for their RVT, RVS, RDCS, RCS, RDMS, RMSK and RMSKS registry exams since 1985. Gulfcoast Ultrasound registry review programs, courses and products are known throughout the continuing medical education industry for being the most comprehensive, highest quality, and efficient preparation options. Gulfcoast registry review programs, courses and products receive the highest reviews and success rate because our past participants are the most successful at taking and passing their boards on their first attempt.
If you do miss the mark on your first attempt at taking the registry after attending a course or webinar, the GCUS Registry Review PASS Guarantee offers you return access to the online course version of your registry review program for 90 days. Simply send us a copy of your exam score (registry exam must be taken within six months of our review) and we’ll grant you a 90 day access to the online course version of the review.

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. (No Hands On Scanning for Registry Review Courses). 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)
Virtual Conferences are no longer the future of education but a necessity, and very likely part of the “new normal” in the world of CME. Gulfcoast Ultrasound Institute has been offering live web streamed CME courses for years, and are constantly striving to develop innovative and effective learning formats for all of our learners. We are excited to offer medical professionals around the world, a Virtual Conference platform that will allow you to attend Gulfcoast Ultrasound Live Courses of all specialties from the comfort and convenience of your home, while maintaining the interactive feel you would have if you were attending a live conference. When you register for a Virtual Conference, on the specific date(s) the conference occurs, you will gain access to the live streamed video lectures, printable course materials, AMA PRA Category 1™ Credits, and the ability to interact and ask questions to our expert faculty just as you would if you were here in person attending a live course. The only difference between a Live Course and a Virtual Conference is the Hands-on Training, which if needed, is always available at a later date either during a scheduled hands-on scanning workshop at Gulfcoast Ultrasound Institute, a private one-on-one hands-on session at Gulfcoast, or custom group onsite workshops at your facility. Virtual Conferences by Gulfcoast Ultrasound Institute are easy to use and available on any computer, or mobile device with an internet connection, giving you flexibility without sacrificing on the live conference learning experience many medical professionals prefer versus a self-directed online course.
See our schedule of Virtual Conferences on this page or on any of the specific ultrasound specialty pages on the Gulfcoast Ultrasound website. More Virtual Conference dates will continue to be added so check back for more offerings, or you can always contact our staff via the Website Chat Feature, at (727)363-4500 or firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions about our Virtual Conferences.
