The COE WFUMB-Venezuela initiated its activities in 2005 and since this year until 2017, we have had a number of attendees of 3,838 with a mean of 306 – 550 persons in each event. The lectures level have been basic, intermediate and advanced ultrasound with Workshops and Hands-on sessions.

In all meetings, we had renowned National and International speakers, including many FLAUS and WFUMB Officers.

In 2016, we decided to change the format of just an annual meeting with a high number of participants. We started to offer courses with longer hands-on session for smaller groups of physicians. The mean number of trainees is 20 per course.

The areas covered are Musculoskeletal, Neurovascular, Nephro-Urology, Abdomen and Vascular.

The COE WFUMB-Venezuela is financially independent of WFUMB but maintain the initiative and commitment for education and promotion for the good practice of ultrasound.
