"Pearls at the Bedside: An Approach to Augmenting the Physical Exam with Pocket-sized Ultrasound", will be presented on Thursday, July 19th by Michael Wagner, MD, FACP, RDMS. Dr. Wagner is an Assistant Professor of Medicine at the University of South Carolina School of Medicine in Columbia, SC. There he serves as the Director of Internal Medicine Ultrasound Education for the residency program.

In this workshop, attendees will review the multi-organ ultrasound physical examination that is routinely used and taught, applicable to both the inpatient and outpatient setting. Attendees will review REAL CASES highlighting its clinical utility when performed routinely as well as the literature showing changes in clinical care of the patients, particularly the elderly. This workshop will describe how the examination can be scaled for the beginner with limited skills and for the clinician with more extensive POCUS experience, as well as recommendations for when and how to layer different applications.

This course is available to only 20 participants so reserve your spot today! The course is available as an add-on event and can be attended separately; however, attendees to the complete conference will receive an additional two-hour didactic lecture on "Point-of-Care Ultrasound (POCUS) for the Generalist: How It Is Used and Why It Matters".

Registration for “Pearls at the Bedside” is $295.  This course is part of SMA’s Focus on Women’s Health Conference.  For more information about the entire conference, learn more here.
