Description

The course is run annually and organized alternately by and in UGent and ULiège. In odd years you can register at ULiège and in even years UGent organizes this training.

It is our objective to offer both theoretical and practice basic skills on musculoskeletal ultrasound (MSUS) showing different joint sites, in healthy subjects and in rheumatic diseases. The course is being updated on a regular basis. A 4-days theoretical course, with several hands-on session integrated is followed by intensive practice training during 40 hours in a recognized center with expertise in rheumatology (min. 20 hours in an academic center, 20 hours elsewhere).

Knowledge and skills are targeted to the level felt to be appropriate for European rheumatologists who would like to acquire a basic theoretical knowledge on MSUS.

This course is intended for rheumatologists and rheumatologists-in-training who have no or little knowledge and skills of musculoskeletal training.
