CE and Training Opportunities
In many parts of the country, fall brings pregchecking season. This fall, do you want to sharpen your ultrasound skills or learn to ultrasound? We closely work with several trainers to provide a variety of courses.
Participants of Dr. Craig DeMuth’s most recent course in Columbus, Montana had the opportunity to learn and discuss different ovarian abnormalities, the diagnosis of twins, the diagnosis of fetal death, and more during the lecture. The following morning at a local ranch, each participant had the chance to develop their arm in cow ultrasound technique and their convex probe extension arm technique. With numerous cows at different stages, the wet lab provided ample opportunity for each person to practice determining fetal age and fetal sex.
If you are considering purchasing an ultrasound but are not sure if it will work for you, Dr. DeMuth’s training courses are an excellent opportunity to try out different equipment brands, probe types, and viewing device options. These courses are also approved for nine CE hours.
If you are more interested in the basics of ultrasounding, another one of ReproScan’ s partners is best for you –the Graham School for Cattlemen in Garnett, KS. The Graham School is a week-long school covering numerous aspects of animal husbandry: AI, calf delivery, herd management, and pregnancy diagnosis. Recently, an additional day at the end of the course has been added to accommodate the increased number of people interested in ultrasound technology. The Graham School has been serving the livestock industry for over one hundred years and is an excellent course for people seeking to broaden their skills.
Lastly, Hermes Genetics will be hosting a series of training sessions this fall. These courses will be limited to five participants to allow for maximum practice time chute-side. With both classroom and chute-side time, these courses are a great chance to learn ultrasound techniques.
