HANDS ON ULTRASOUND EDUCATION
The Hands-On Ultrasound Education (HOUSE) Program gives rural physicians the training and confidence to integrate point-of-care ultrasound into their practice. HOUSE was specifically designed to meet the unique needs of rural physicians. By providing education that is customized for each community, the program meets the needs of learners with a wide range of pre-existing skills. HOUSE delivers learning in a relaxed and fun environment, with a high instructor to student ratio, to maximize hands-on practice time.
The HOUSE program was developed and is operated by the UBC Faculty of Medicine’s Division of Continuing Professional Development (UBC CPD) in partnership with the Rural Coordination Centre of BC within the UBC Rural CPD program. Funding for the HOUSE program was provided by the Joint Standing Committee on Rural Issues, a joint committee of the Doctors of BC and BC Ministry of Health.
