Ultrasound-assisted Clinical Skills for Disasters

With the support of Hong Kong Jockey Club Disaster Preparedness and Response Institute, the Emergency Medicine Unit of The University of Hong Kong developed a course on "Ultrasound-assisted Clinical Skills for Disasters". This course was geared towards the goal of updating participants with the latest ultrasound knowledge in a field setting, and a repertoire of skills regarding the contemporary practice of point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) on trauma casualties in disaster management.


The first cohort of students of the “Ultrasound-assisted Clinical Skills for Disasters”course graduated on 24 July 2016. This cohort included 22 medical students and 10 practicing emergency physicians.
