Within the medical community, the New Year marks the opportunity to continue pursuing and implementing the best care possible. As information is collected and technology frequently modernized, medical professionals turn to their peer community to offer support and create opportunities for advancing standardized care. This growth leads to improvements in the technologies used and the practices implemented.
One modality at the forefront of medicine in recent years is point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS). As practitioners and healthcare workers have become increasingly aware of its benefits, its presence has grown beyond the traditional use of imaging and radiology. Each year, its technology is enhanced, education is standardized, and hands-on training opportunities become more readily available to individuals looking to increase their POCUS capabilities.
Individual Growth Benefits for the Healthcare Community
The power of POCUS to positively impact the medical field is amplified when members and organizations of all experience levels work together. That is why at the Point-of-Care Ultrasound (POCUS) Certification Academy™ (PCA), we aim to support the professional development of healthcare professionals, doctors, physician assistants, medical students, and other providers who actively look to engage with POCUS and expand their expertise. We offer providers the chance to receive POCUS certifications and certificates, the ability to engage and further support the community through volunteer activities, and share knowledge through educational tools such as tutorials and case studies.
For medical providers who desire high-quality POCUS education and training, we offer our Point-of-Care Ultrasound (POCUS) Education Provider (PEP) program. This program provides healthcare workers the opportunity to increase their POCUS knowledge through a series of up-to-date academic and tactile opportunities.
There are two path options professionals can select from:
Both avenues engage healthcare workers with POCUS, further their expertise, and help strengthen the standards surrounding the use of ultrasound in the field. The benefits of taking a course from a POCUS Education Provider include:
- Engaging with current content
- Training guided by trusted standards
- Earning a POCUS Certificate at the end of the program
The dual access to academic experience and training allows medical professionals to develop necessary skills as they learn, something that for many healthcare workers is invaluable when considering their schedules.
Seize the Opportunity to Pursue Better Care
Healthcare professionals are at the heart of every functioning society, and their mission to provide accessible quality care is never-ending. As knowledge of medicine, disease, and technology innovation increases, their adaptability to improve their practices allows care standards to advance globally.
As we move forward in this new year, let us collaborate and unite to ensure healthcare continues to improve. When all of medicine engages in the pursuit of innovation and growth, the entire world benefits!
