Dear Colleagues,

The Rheumatology Division at Hamad Medical Corporation is delighted to invite all rheumatologists to participate in our 5th Qatar Musculoskeletal Ultrasound Course which will take place in Doha from 6 to 8 December 2018.

Due to its great success over the last four years, we have this year increased the number of trainers to accommodate more participants.

Although there are various musculoskeletal ultrasound courses being held all over the world including 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 course: for those who are beginners in ultrasound practice or have some experience in MSK ultrasound.
  • Intermediate level I: for those who have completed at least 2 basic courses with regular practice and would like to improve their skills at 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 (as above). This level of training offers an opportunity to gain knowledge beyond MSK US (Vasculitis, Nerves…)
Sessions of US guided procedures will be provided to all intermediate level participants.

This year, we are also offering a workshop for pediatric rheumatologists provided by pediatric MSK US Experts. 

Emphasis is focused on individualized training in small groups. This is guaranteed by the presence of internationally-acclaimed trainers who will give lectures, demos and hands-on training.

It’s important to note that eligibility to participate in the intermediate level of this course will require evidence of 30 MSK US and a brief CV of your experience in MSK US.

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