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.

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, but an exceptional opportunity to practice ultrasound-guided interventions on fresh-frozen cadavers will be possible during a morning session on the 15th of June. This session is, however, only optional, and the course certificate will be provided based on course attendance from the 13-14th of June. 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!
