EULAR On-line Introductory Ultrasound Course

The EULAR On-line Introductory Ultrasound Course is an electronic form of continuous medical education in rheumatology.

The course is run entirely through the web, designed for 7 months of training. The course will cover 7 modules, starting each September and finishing in April, followed by a final online examination a month later. Upon passing the examination a EULAR certificate will be issued. If the course is not completed or the exam failed after the first year, the course will automatically extend for one more year without charge.

It is our objective to offer theoretical basic skills on musculoskeletal ultrasound (MSUS) showing different joint sites, in healthy subjects and in rheumatic diseases, using a wide variety of images and video clips. The course is being updated on a yearly basis.

Knowledge and skills are targeted at the level felt to be appropriate for European rheumatologists who would like to acquire a basic theoretical knowledge on MSUS. Participants of this course might later plan to continue with the training program by attending EULAR MSUS Courses and/or MSUS courses with EULAR endorsement. 

This on-line ultrasound course was developed with a substantial grant from EULAR and is continuously highly subsidised by EULAR so that the entire course can be offered at EUR 100 per participant.

Please consider the EULAR Textbook on Rheumatic Diseases,  2015 edition, for only 135 plus shipment (30 EUR).
The course and Textbook can also be ordered directly with the on-line registration.
