Dear Colleagues,

The Rheumatology Division at Hamad Medical Corporation is delighted to invite all rheumatologists to participate in our 4th Qatar Musculoskeletal Ultrasound course which will be held from December 7 - 9, 2017 in Doha, Qatar.

Following its great success in the last three years, we have increased the number of trainers in order to accommodate more participants. Although there are various musculoskeletal ultrasound courses being held all over the world including in the Middle East, our course is unique as it is specifically tailored to meet the demands of the practicing rheumatologist.

This is a three - day course of intense ultrasound training divided into three levels:
  • Basic level: for those who are beginners in ultrasound practice or have some experience in MSK ultrasound.
  • Intermediate level I: for those who already participated in at least 2 Basic courses, regularly practice ultrasound, and they would like to improve their skills to a higher level.
  • Intermediate level II: for those who are practicing daily MSK US and have completed intermediate level training or an equivalent of Intermediate I level. This level of training offers an opportunity to gain knowledge beyond MSK US (vasculitis, nerves, etc.).
Ultrasound guided procedure sessions will be provided to all intermediate level participants. We have put emphasis on individualized training in small groups that is guaranteed by the presence of internationally-acclaimed trainers who will give lectures, demonstrations and hands-on training. We are also offering a workshop for pediatric rheumatologist, provided by pediatric MSK US Experts.

This year the basic level is scientifically endorsed by EULAR, and all levels accredited by European Federation of Societies for Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology (EFSUMB). Participants will also gain International CPD credits by Qatar Council for Healthcare Practitioners (QCHP).

Our aim is to ensure that participants will gain an optimum knowledge and confidence in practicing standardized MSK US.

Yours sincerely,

Dr. Izzat A M Khanjar
