Welcome to WINFOCUS International Campus 2024

Get ready to unlock the secrets of Point-of-Care Ultrasound (PoCUS) as you immerse yourself in dynamic discussions, hands-on workshops, and groundbreaking insights!

The WINFOCUS international campus in Florence will offer a menu of unique PoCUS teaching opportunities in an innovative educational format. Registrants will tailor their learning experience to their needs.
It will be hosted by a roster of undisputed international experts sharing their expertise in face-to-face exchanges with small groups of learners.

The Amici del Pronto Soccorso Foundation, guided by President Elisabetta Bardelli and advised by Professor Stefano Grifoni, upholds the belief that investment in the training of doctors and nurses is essential to ensure that acute medicine services are delivered for patients with the utmost promptness and effectiveness.
This year, the foundation is collaborating with WINFOCUS to host an International Campus focused on point of care ultrasound.
Moreover, the foundation is committed to extending the reach of this knowledge to developing countries by involving their representatives in the Campus.
