The Philippine Society of Ultrasound in Clinical Medicine, Inc. (PSUCMI) launched our newly revitalized website: www.psucmi.org last August 17, 2020. This new website will help us reach out to our old and new potential members. It will also provide easier access to ultrasound related educational materials.
To coincide with the launch, PSUCMI together with our educational partner, SIEMENS Healthineers, hosted a webinar entitled: The Role of Lung Ultrasound in COVID-19 Disease. It is the first online educational activity and webinar hosted by PSUCMI. The lecture was given live by Professor Dirk-André Clevert, M.D., section chief of the Interdisciplinary Ultrasound Center at The Ludwig Maximillian University of Munich.
We also invited two contributory reactors to share their insights and experiences in lung ultrasound after the lecture: 1. Dr. Romulo Brasil Babasa III, an Emergency Medicine Specialist from St. Luke’s Medical Center Quezon City and 2. Dr. Julie Christie Visperas, a Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine Specialist from the University of Santo Tomas Hospital, Manila. The webinar was moderated by Dr. Anna Lyn Egwolf from St. Luke’s Medical Center.
Participants were also given the chance to ask questions to our speaker and reactors.
The event generated 714 registrants with 505 actual participants, a record above our expectation. Participants came from various medical specialties, from various institutions all over the Philippines. We also had international participants from Myanmar, Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, India, Bangladesh and Japan. It was a very fruitful and interactive educational experience for everyone.
