IBUS ACCREDITED TRAINING PROGRAMME
A core aspect of this training programme is to teach standardization of technique and examination whilst performing GIUS. For this reason, an international ultrasound curriculum has been established, consisting of three educational parts:
- Introductive Workshop (3 days),
- Hands-On Training (approx. 40 real-life cases within 4 weeks) and
- Workshop at the annual convention of ECCO (final exam/1 day).
The first workshop took place in Lueneburg/Germany in November 2016, followed by a hands-on-training for four weeks; the final part of graduation was completion of an examination during the ECCO congress in February 2017. This curriculum was successfully adopted, therefore the next workshop was organized in Milan/Italy in May 2017; subsequent workshops are scheduled for April 2018 in Calgary/Canada and November 2018 in Melbourne/Australia. In 2019, you were invited in Israel & Denmark. In 2020, the workshops will be held in Portugal & the Netherlands.
By participating in Module I - III and fulfilling the criteria for the courses, you will become awarded with a certification on basic intestinal ultrasonography skills.
For any further details about above stated modules, please contact the IBUS Group Office
Module 1: Introduction of bowel ultrasonography. Theory & hands-on workshop
The Introduction into bowel ultrasonography is a 2-day workshop. Through the combination of theoretical and practical components, with real persons and, if possible, patients as well as an IBD ultrasonography simulator, participants can learn the basics of ultrasound application in IBD and will retain a copy of a bowel ultrasonography teaching compendium and gain access to the teaching material.
Module 2: Four weeks Hands-on training. Learn with expert supervision
Module 2 as a four-week hands-on training at a certified IBUS centre, aiming to document at least 40 real cases, deepens knowledge and practical abilities in bowel ultrasonography. This module leads as well to an IBUS certification. Module 1 prior to module 2 is mandatory.
