To better meet the needs of healthcare professionals and their patients, the Point-of-Care Ultrasound (POCUS) Certification Academy™ is available to not only physicians, but also other healthcare professionals, including physician assistants, nurse practitioners, sonographers, emergency medicine personnel, midwives, as well as medical residents and students. The POCUS Certification Academy offers a wide variety of specialized individual clinical Certificates from cardiac, deep vein thrombosis and lung to musculoskeletal, obstetrics and gastrointestinal to name a few. The POCUS Fundamentals Certificate is a prerequisite for these Certificates and any Certifications as this ensures healthcare professionals have validated their competency in the basics of point-of-care ultrasound.
POCUS Certifications—or set packages of POCUS Certificates—are offered for those seeking to further validate an expanded level of expertise in handheld ultrasound procedures. The POCUS Generalist Certification was developed for primary care physicians, family medicine practitioners and generalists. The POCUS Emergency Medicine Certification was created for first responders, ER physicians and staff, as well as other emergency medicine providers.
