The Pediatric Ultrasound Course is a two day introductory course that covers all the primary applications of pediatric/emergency ultrasound. The course is arranged so lectures are given in the morning with concentrated hands on lab experience in the afternoon both days. The lab uses live models for a realistic training experience and we provide adequate faculty coverage to ensure a significant hands on experience for each participant.
The course will be located at The Westin Michigan Avenue. The Westin Michigan Avenue, Boasting Chicago’s best address in the heart of downtown, offers a 4 Star, 4 Diamond hotel experience on the Magnificent Mile just across the street from Bloomingdale’s, the upscale shops of Water Tower Place and steps from numerous restaurants and entertainment. You can appreciate the inspired cuisine of The Grill on The Alley, which is rated among the Top 20 steakhouses in Chicago by Chicago Magazine, as well as enjoy Starbuck’s Café a la carte located in the hotel lobby.
