Event Overview
Welcome message:

With a “flipped classroom” format, practical hands-on sessions, and internationally renowned faculty, you will learn useful information and skills that will add immediate benefit in clinical practice. The comprehensive and learner-centered curriculum includes:

15 Hour of Mandatory eLearning

Course curriculum includes a suite of eLearning modules provided by joint educational provider USabcd. The eLearning is an integral part of the program and must be successfully completed prior to attending the weekend course in Chicago. Access to the eLearning will be available to paid participants starting on September 24, 2018.


Because instructional content is delivered in advance via the eLearning modules, onsite lectures will be succinct and summarize key information; allowing more time for the hands-on practice with expert faculty.


For each session, groups rotate to a new faculty member, model, and machine to allow for exposure to different equipment, scanning and teaching styles, as well as sonoanatomy of various models. There are 5 participants per station, 1-2 faculty per station, and “floating” experts for extra support throughout. Each hands-on session will reinforce previously learned skills, building a solid foundation throughout the weekend.


In addition to real-time feedback during the hands-on sessions, the program offers ample time for formal and informal Q&A with fellow attendees and faculty.

Basic FATE Certification

(must complete entire program through Sunday 12:45 pm to be certified)

In addition to pre/post-testing, participants will also earn Basic Focus Assessed Transthoracic Echocardiography (FATE) certification; an internationally endorsed format with a 25-year track record and over 400 completed courses.
