Vancouver POCUS Symposium

placeholder image-wide

The 2nd annual Vancouver Point of Care Ultrasound (POCUS) Symposium took place on Saturday May 8, 2021 as a virtual conference. We had over 180 participants join us as our amazing faculty provided an update on the most recent trends in resuscitative, diagnostic, and procedural POCUS. The symposium ended with a panel discussion on POCUS and standard of care with experts from anesthesia, critical care, emergency medicine, and internal medicine. If you registered, you’ll be able to access recorded versions of all the talks for the next year.
