COURSES

All our HOUSE offerings travel to your community, maximize the hands-on time, and teach to learners with variable skill levels. While we have three off-the-shelf courses, we actually customize the agenda of each course to suit your community needs. Find the course that fits your needs, whether your interest is in acute care, maternity care, or internal medicine. Can’t find what you are looking for? Tell us what you need, and we will create the course for you.

Pre-Learning

Prior to starting a HOUSE course, there is a required pre-learning exercise to complete on our UBC CPD eLearning site. This enables learners the opportunity to go through preliminary material at their own pace, and gather background knowledge or refresh their knowledge about PoCUS.
