World Interactive Network Focused on Critical Ultrasound (WINFOCUS), a global leader in the Point of Care Ultrasound (POCUS) holds a yearly World Congress in different continents attracting world authorities on ultrasound from many countries. We are pleased to announce that the 15th WINFOCUS World Congress will be held in the vibrant city of Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates from February 21-24, 2019. Being an exciting and easily accesible destination, we hope to see large number of attendees from all over the world. Many local and regional societies will collaborate in this event to support this educational activity for many specialties in medicine.
Our meeting offers a number of point of care ultrasound courses on emergency and critical care in different specialties, which have been highly successful and popular to prepare the practitioners to meet the growing need of ultrasound knowledge and skills in their specialties through didactic and ‘hands on’ training sessions. This year we are adding a number of new courses to meet the growing demands of ultrasound training in many specialties. In addition, speakers in our plenary sessions will bring in exciting new information on innovative techniques and technologies, teaching methodologies and research. The manufacturers of ultrasound devices have produced new probes, smart machines, ultracompact units, and many new self-learning and teaching adjuncts to the conventional machines. You will be able to try them out in the exhibits section and even order them for yourselves or your institutions. There will be an exciting and informative session on technology and artificial intelligence during the meeting.
The 15th WINFOCUS World Congress will be a global gathering of practitioners from many specialties in medicine, educators, students, nurses, doctors in training, researchers, innovators, who have embraced ultrasound as an integral part of their daily practice. This meeting offers a great inter specialty interaction and tremendous learning opportunities. Dubai has many cultural, social and entertainment opportunities for the whole family, thus, it could be a great vacation as well in the most pleasant month of the year.
We look forward to seeing you all in Dubai in February, 2019.
