Overview

About Gulfcoast Ultrasound Institute
Since 1985, Gulfcoast Ultrasound Institute, Inc. has been a respected leader in continuing medical education (CME) dedicated to the diagnostic ultrasound profession.

Live from St. Pete Beach (Florida), select locations around the country, or from your location as an Onsite Education Course! Gulfcoast Ultrasound Institute (with our permanent facility in St. Pete Beach, Florida) has conducted hundreds of courses of various specialties for over 30 years. Gulfcoast Ultrasound Institute has provided education to over 131,000 physicians, sonographers, and other medical professionals who have attended the programs, and has awarded over 406,080 CME credits to participants worldwide!

Introductory level programs are designed to meet the needs of the novice medical professional cross-training into ultrasound, as well as the experienced medical professional needing to become adept in another specialty (and learn it right the first time!). We guarantee you will leave our courses with the competence and confidence needed to perform successful ultrasound examinations.

Advanced level programs are designed for the more experienced medical professionals who are committed to taking their skills to the highest level possible. Covering advancements in ultrasound technology and applying new techniques for increased diagnostic capabilities, will ensure you are at the forefront of diagnostic / interventional ultrasound.

The interpretation seminars enable greater focus on recognizing pathology and understanding the specific interpretation criteria for accurate diagnosis. Attendance by physicians and sonographers allows everyone involved in the ultrasound examination to be aware of technical artifacts and other potential diagnostic errors which can be made. This knowledge will increase the ability for everyone to work together as a "team" in determining the correct diagnosis.

All of the introductory, and advanced level programs consist of lectures, case presentations, and generous hands-on sessions. Numerous educational resources are available through our video, computer, and textbook learning centers when the participants are not scheduled for lectures or scanning.

Several self-assessment examinations are also provided to assist you with identifying your individual strengths and weaknesses. By utilizing various teaching methods and techniques, we are able to ensure your educational objectives are met or exceeded. The teaching faculty includes various staff and guest speakers who are nationally recognized. Experienced, registered sonographers who are keenly aware of state-of-the-art equipment and techniques provide the hands-on instruction, which is tailored to the individual's specific needs.

Custom group programs are also available for scheduling either at our facility or away.

Our Online classrooms, Online Videos, and DVD mini lectures provide savings in time and money for obtaining required CME credits, and enhance your skill level, in the convenience of your own home or office. You will also benefit from improvements in job performance which will assist you with obtaining the professional recognition you deserve! Every year we provide you with new education products to help you maintain, enhance, and/or increase your level of knowledge. Regardless of your choice, we are committed to providing superior continuing education in a relaxed, highly personal atmosphere.

Make the commitment to professional and personal excellence... We invite you to participate in one of our continuing education programs. We are confident you will agree the education and experience obtained will ultimately allow you to provide increased quality patient care while at the same time expand your skill level to excel in your professional career. The reality? Knowledge is powerful medicine!
