About us: Echocardiography and ultrasound for the unwell adult. 

We are a group of critical care Consultants and senior Doctors working at South London Teaching hospitals, We have created a series of resources and courses designed specifically for medical professionals who wish to learn to use ultrasound to inform and speed up their decision-making when it matters most.  Our courses are almost entirely hands on to maximise the time you have mentored practice.  Our themed, small group sessions maximise individual experience whilst enabling group discussion and learning.  Our aim is not just to teach you ultrasound, it is to enable you to integrate it into your clinical practice so that you know what it means in the clinical context and how to use it to manage your patient. 

 

We are proud of our courses and aim to provide the very best critical care echo learning experiences through our approach.  Developed and delivered by experienced, practicing clinicians,  the small group discussions, loads of hands on experience, free online educational resources, monthly educational meetings, an annual conference, chances to teach and ongoing ties to the community add up to a new way to practice acute medicine.  Check out some photos from our recent course!
