Simches Building, Massachusetts General Hospital
Boston, Massachusetts



Over the past decade, point-of-care musculoskeletal ultrasound (MSUS) has grown in use among all medical specialties, including rheumatology, sports medicine, and pediatrics. Musculoskeletal ultrasound is a highly valuable skill that has been shown to expedite the diagnosis and management of a variety of musculoskeletal conditions, improve procedural accuracy and safety, improve patient outcomes, and is of significantly less cost than other advanced imaging modalities. Sponsored by the Massachusetts General Hospital and Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital, and accredited by Harvard Medical School, the Musculoskeletal Ultrasound at the Point-of-Care Course is geared towards physicians and allied health professionals (nurse practitioners, physician assistants, physical and occupational therapists) learning to gain expertise in musculoskeletal ultrasound as part of their practice. Joint-based lectures and hands-on teaching with patient models will be provided by a nationally recognized group of faculty. The course consists of two days of live CME activities, utilizing the following educational formats:

  • Lectures by leading experts in the United States on topics pertaining to their special areas of interest;

  • Direct, hands-on learning in small groups with in-depth ultrasound scanning demonstrations, scanning of patient models with and without pathology, and utilization of a variety of commercially available ultrasound machines; and

  • Panel discussions in which presenters and instructors entertain questions solicited from the audience.
