SonoSim Ultrasound Training Modules Approved for CME Credit

Wednesday Oct 28, 2015



SonoSim, Inc., a leading global provider of ultrasound education and training, today announced the availability of Continuing Medical Education (CME) Credit across an additional 32 SonoSim® Modules. SonoSim® Modules deliver a maximum of 141 hours of AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ CME. Participation in accredited CME activities is required for physicians, nurses, and diagnostic medical sonographers to maintain licensing, board certification, credentialing, and membership in professional societies.

SonoSim's recently approved CME Modules deliver a continuum of ultrasound education, ranging from basic to highly specialized ultrasound training. SonoSim® Modules are organized into Anatomy & Physiology, Core Clinical, Advanced Clinical, and Procedure Modules, each containing didactic education, assessment, and hands-on scanning practice using the SonoSimulator®. The ability to scan real-patient cases spanning a broad range of pathologic conditions is a unique feature of the SonoSimulator®.

Traditionally, earning ultrasound training CME Credit required traveling to expensive courses. The lack of pathologic conditions and rapid loss of acquired knowledge and scanning skill have historically been limiting factors to this approach. “SonoSim gives medical care providers 24/7 access to CME, and allows users to perfect imaging techniques and interpretation across a variety of pathologic conditions via the SonoSimulator®" states Dr. Dan Katz, MD, FACEP, emergency medicine physician and Vice President of SonoSim, Inc. “This expansion of our CME offerings will make it easier for medical providers seeking to develop and/or augment their ultrasound proficiency in the comfort of their own homes."
