The EDE Bootcamp system is an intense three-day hands-on program that provides the user with directly supervised scanning of over 100 live models. Visual and auditory station timers keep everyone on schedule and maximize probe time.
Approximately 10 hours of written and video course materials are completed before the workshop.
You are usually working in pairs with one partner scanning while the other documents the scans in a logbook.
Written, practical and visual exams are administered during bootcamp to consolidate learning and qualify the participant for Canadian Point of Care Ultrasound Independent Practitioner Certification.
