Lung US in Neonatal Care

Dear Colleagues

We are running a POCUS course in lung ultrasound in neonatology from January onwards. 

Thank you for your expression of interest for the course on LUS in neonatal care. I am providing a framework for running the course and a little background in the video below.


Course Duration
The course will be run over 3 months, starting the month of January and rounding off end of March. We will be mentoring a small group of candidates (number to be decided) through the course, combining online teaching, workshops and interactive discussions.
The course covers LUS in 3 modules over three months
1. The Normal Lung 
2. Lung Pathology
3. Clinical correlation diagnosis and Clinical Approach

Sessions will be organised weekly to cover a fixed curriculum shared below. Our faculty is quite diverse, including colleagues from UK, France, Spain, Canada and India

The commitment is 90 minutes a week for the course period, which will be on a scheduled day of the week that will be sent by December. If you cannot attend the live sessions, then the topic will be shared with you online for your review. 
Each session will include time for you to share your cases for online critique and this is held after the teaching is complete. We will supply you with a logbook to keep your images. 

The course fee is 250 pounds for high and middle-income countries and 10000 rupees if you are from an LMIC country. Please note that if you can't afford the course fee but want to learn and will be committed to the course throughout, then we can consider reducing/waiving the fee on a case-by-case basis.

MCQ and Accreditation
For those of you who would like accreditation via the course, it is mandatory that you have access to a US machine and can share cases and images in an anonymised way. We will teach you how to do that. At the end of the course, you have to give an online exam that has a pass mark which will be a review of the three core parts of the curriculum as outlined above.

 Please let me know if you are interested.

Best Wishes

Alok Sharma
