The ARCTICA Continuning Medical Education Project offers you an interactive and completely remote course on cardiopulmonary point-of-care-ultrasound (POCUS). Our mission is to facilitate the uptake of POCUS into practice by health care practitioners in all levels of care. Hence, we designed a 3 module course that synthethized the basics of cardiopulmonary POCUS that are completely self-guided. Complete your course with a one-on-one live session with one of our experts to provide you individualized feedback.

This certificate meets the standards set by Public Health Ontario and the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada for self-guided education activities. As well, this certificate is accredited by Queen’s University Health Sciences Department and the Cardiovascular imaging network at Queen’s.
