WINFOCUS Academy courses are based on the most recent evidence on Point of Care Ultrasound (PoCUS) practice and education and on the experience of teaching PoCUS courses on hundreds of occasions in more than fifty countries around the globe in the past 15 years.
WINFOCUS is committed to promoting and supporting the use of PoCUS by clinicians without regard to their socioeconomic status. As such, the charges for our educational products reflect regional variations in earnings, cost of living, and World Bank country categorization.
This allows us to fulfill better our mission to provide access to ultrasound education and teaching in every part of the world.
PoCUS mostly unveils pathophysiology and only sometimes allows a definite diagnosis. That’s why a significant amount of the educational content in the e-lectures explains the pathophysiological basis of the relevant PoCUS findings.
Based on a thorough review of the most updated PoCUS literature, the in-context accuracy for each ultrasound sign on which PoCUS use is based is described. This evidence is pragmatically summarized into reference values and qualitative parameters usable as guidance, especially for novice practitioners.
Each e-course covers the basics of image acquisition, image interpretation, and detailed clinical integration of the information obtained with the various PoCUS applications for the clinical management of mainly critically ill patients
The hallmark of these e-courses is that they can either be attended as standalone by those willing to begin or to perfect their PoCUS knowledge or as an e-learning component of WINFOCUS courses in their new blended learning format, which would include focused, practical training as well.

“Taking the WINFOCUS FoCUS course when I was a resident or fellow would have made my PoCUS education more immediate and effective. The course is up to date with the most recent recommendations, and the level of lectures is of absolute excellence. I strongly recommend it to every physician who manages critical patients.”
“The WINFOCUS Academy offers a comprehensive POCUS educational format beyond the typical "spot-the-pathology" approach. With the aim of mastering POCUS competence, it equips learners with the necessary skills to effectively incorporate POCUS into their patient management in real-world clinical scenarios. This much-needed resource has been a long time coming.”
“Point of care ultrasound is image acquisition, interpretation, and integration. There are few courses that teach all three. Finally, an educational platform and courses that do - and with decades of experience in their instructors!”
