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 Word Congress will be held in the commercial hub of the Middle East, Dubai, UAE from February 21-24, 2019. 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 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. In addition, speakers in our plenary sessions bring in exciting new information on innovative techniques and technologies, teaching methodologies and research. In the past years, it has been possible only through strong financial support and cooperation of our industry partners to hold such exciting meetings. Availability of Ultrasound machines is essential to run the practical sessions of our courses.
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 kind of world class meeting also offers a great opportunity for the manufacturers of ultrasound and other relevant equipment to showcase their prize products in the exhibit halls.
Many thanks for your support of global application of ultrasound and consideration of sponsorship of the WINFOCUS World Congress.
