The Ultrasound Education Group (UEG) was founded in 2004 at the University of Melbourne's Department of Surgery by Professors Alistair and Colin Royse. With advancement in recent technology, Portable Ultrasound Machine will be ubiquitous and affordable for professionals across different areas of healthcare industry in the near future.
Our mission is to equip holistic knowledge for medical practitioners to perform Point-of-Care Ultrasound Diagnosis. By combining eLearning with hands-on simulator workshops and and live-model practices, delivered by world-renowned experts in the field, we open the Pathway to Ultrasound Future for all healthcare professionals around the world.
The first course created was the Postgraduate Diploma of Perioperative and Critical Care Echocardiography. Over time this has expanded to the current portfolio which includes Graduate Certificate, Diploma and Master of Clinical Ultrasound. The iHeartScan and iHeartScan Advanced workshops were also developed, and more recently the Focused Ultrasound Simulator Education TTE, TOE, Peri-Arrest, Vascular and Lung and Gastric courses which integrate eLearning with simulators to reinforce practical components.
Our Mobile Learning Platform can be accessed, anytime, anywhere, on nearly any device!
In Australia, there are roughly 6500 anaesthetists and intensive care physicians. Over 2500 students have graduated from our award courses, and over 3000 have completed one of our workshops or getting started packages. To put this in perspective, we believe we have trained approximately 40% of the entire pool of anaesthetists and intensive care physicians in Australia.
The course has been so useful in fact the other day I was reading a tutorial then when at work the same scenario occurred and I was able to directly save a life because of that knowledge. Very grateful, thank you.
