Copenhagen International 

Head & Neck Ultrasound Course

This course aims to teach head and neck ultrasound and ultrasound-guided interventions to ENT/head and neck surgeons, endocrinologists, radiologists, and other related healthcare providers. The course is both for experienced practitioners and trainees who are interested in incorporating ultrasound into their clinical practice.

            Latest Covid-19 Update (9/4 2020):

Dear all,


Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we will need to postpone the ultrasound course in June. 


We are working on some new dates for the course, which will be announced ASAP on the website. The course participants will get a refund of the money paid for the course. 


All the best in these difficult times!


Christian and Tobias

An international multispeciality faculty will teach, and half of the time is planned for hands-on training on volunteer patients with a teacher-to-student ratio of 1:3. The course is from the 13-14th June and The European Federation of Societies for Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology (EFSUMB) has endorsed the course.


We hope to see you in wonderfull Copenhagen in June 2020!
