Our Abdominal Ultrasound Training Course Structure

AHEC has structured our abdominal ultrasound training course in a way that covers all the bases. During the first three days, participants will gain experience through lecture, case studies and faculty supervised, hands on scanning. This format allows each participant ample opportunity to gain the knowledge and confidence needed to independently perform a basic abdominal ultrasound.

On the final day of the course, all participants will be in the scanning lab for the entire day. This ensures that everyone has abundant opportunity to practice abdominal ultrasound in a clinical lab setting. Live models will be our ultrasound subjects, which is just one thing that sets AHEC abdominal ultrasound training apart from other courses. If you wish to complete a more comprehensive program, we also offer a two-week course that combines this abdominal ultrasound course with a five-day OB/GYN ultrasound course.

If you are a physician, sonographer or physician assistant at the entry level of ultrasound scanning and interpretation, this course may be for you. Read our full course description HERE, and then contact AHEC to register for abdominal ultrasound training today.
