The Vancouver POCUS SIMulATION and resuscitation Course

This course is oriented towards all physicians who take care of sick patients. 


We will teach you the PoCUS skills that you need to rapidly diagnose and assess the critically ill patients you see on your next shift.  We spend less time lecturing so you can have more time getting hands on coaching.  


You will then take those skills and apply them in resuscitation simulations to maximize clinical integration.
