Echocardiography has come a long way from its humble beginnings. The addition of M-Mode, two dimensional real time imaging, Doppler, color flow, and now three and four dimensional imaging have all changed the way echocardiography is practiced. Diastolic assessment and changes in nomenclature have even changed the language of Echo. This course covers echo from M-mode to 3-D. After completion you will be confident in choosing the proper tools to assess common pathological conditions such as valvular abnormalities, systolic, and diastolic function. Development of a consistent protocol is mandatory to avoid missing pathology and our scan lab with state of the art equipment and low student instructor ratios will give you the time and opportunity to practice, practice, practice.
At the completion of this course, the learner will be able to:
Physicians who want to learn basic echocardiography procedure skills and entry level interpretation, and sonographers or other health professionals learning to perform adult echocardiography procedures.
Scan With the Experts
We understand that you may want/need to practice your new skill set more than the regularly scheduled courses allow. You can add an extra day of scanning in addition to this course by calling AHEC and speaking to a faculty member about our Scan with the Experts option. Additionally, Scan with the Experts sessions can be set up without registering for a regularly scheduled course to enhance your already developed skills. Call AHEC at 1-800-239-1361 for more information.
AHEC Cancellation and Refund Policy for Skills Courses
AHEC defines a skills course as a limited enrollment course where a received registration with payment reserves your place in a course (i.e. all Ultrasound courses, Mammography Initial Training and other theory courses). For cancellations received at least two weeks prior to the course date, a refund less a 30% processing fee will be given. Within two weeks of the course, no refund is given, but a tuition credit – less a 30% processing fee – may be applied to a future course. No refunds or tuition credit is given for non-attendance. Facilities may substitute employees by notification to AHEC at least one week in advance.
AHEC can provide an invitation letter once the course is paid in full. Any cancellations, there is no refund but a 100% tuition credit will be given towards a future course. The tuition credit is valid for one year.
