The CRUS Basic Course for rheumatologists and trainees introduces participants to the effective use of MSK-US in a clinical setting, with the aim to optimize clinical decision-making and therapeutic management. The course is offered over two weekend-long sessions that are spaced apart to give students the opportunity to apply their new skills in practice and receive expert feedback on scans that they submit online.
CRUS also offers a number of Advanced Courses for clinicians with MSK-US experience throughout the year. Advanced Courses courses are offered in locations across Canada and cover a range of topics relevant to the rheumatology practitioner.
