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-participant ratio of 1:3. Further, ultrasound-guided interventions (including biopsies and minimally invasive treatments) will be practiced on special made fantoms and fresh-frozen cadavers at the Panum Institute, Faculty of Health Science, Copenhagen University. The course is held from the 10-11th June and The European Federation of Societies for Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology (EFSUMB) has endorsed the course. The course is following the COVID-19 safety recommendation from the Danish Health Authority's and participants' fees will be refunded if the course unexpectedly will be canceled due to change in the pandemic.
We hope to see you in wonderfull Copenhagen in June 2021!
