The USCMC Global Program is the USCME component devoted to develop ‘Critical Ultrasound’ education, certification, credentialing, accreditation, integrating at different extents education and healthcare institutions, through post-graduate CME programs.
It is designed and developed together with the UNITED Program (the project focusing university pre-graduate and post-graduate curricula), within the frame of the USCME Global Initiative.
At date, three main curricula are being developed focusing basic and advanced applications for three main bundles of practice:
USLS [UltraSound Life Support]
USPHC [UltraSound for Primary Health Care]
ECHO-ICU [Echocardiography for Intensivists]
USLS >> UltraSound Life Support
US PHC >> UltraSound Primary Health Care
US MON >> UltraSound Minitoring (in Intensive Care Unit)
The modules are based on a large number of applications increasingly reported by the International literature.
See bibliography references through the common medical web engines, and particularly the outstanding “Critical Care Medicine Journal” Supplement:
The learning and certification matrix is developed by two relevant documents recently published by Winfocus, as prototypes of an incoming guideline series, based on International consensus and evidence:
NOTE: Recommendations and guidelines coming from the ILCEUS conferences and studies will provide soon further effective formats for the training modules.
