Lung Ultrasound Day for Internists 2015: ASMIQ/CCUS, Montreal, May 29th 2015.

In collaboration with the Quebec Association of Internal Medicine Specialists (ASMIQ), and featuring none other than Dr. Daniel Lichtenstein (the original pioneer of bedside ultrasound and the first to truly do and develop lung ultrasound), we’ve put together a really good day of lectures and workshops. As a bonus, my good friend Dr. Haney Mallemat (@criticalcarenow) will be giving us a hand with workshops and maybe even a special lecture! Take a look:

Bedside Ultrasound for Internists / L’Échographie Clinique pour l’Interniste – ASMIQ/CCUS, May 23rd, 2014.

Although bedside ultrasound truly started in the emergency room and is slowly spreading to critical care, its usefulness extends to all aspects of medicine, particularily in hospitalist and consultation medicine. The CCUS Institute is proud to be involved in a forward-thinking undertaking by ASMIQ to increase bedside ultrasound use by its members.

For the second year, the Critical Care & UltraSound Institute (CCUS) is hosting ASMIQ (Association des Spécialistes en Médecine Interne du Québec / Quebec Association of Internal Medicine Specialists) members for a day of bedside ultrasound, tailored for internal medicine practice.  This year’s program will review volume status, focused cardiac and lung ultrasound as well as ultrasound-guided bedside procedures. There will be 3.5 hours of workshops in the day.

The didactic presentations will be given in french, and the workshops both in french and english.
