Ultra EMG is a comprehensive hands-on course on electrodiagnostic medicine, musculoskeletal and neuromuscular ultrasound, and clinnical neuromuscular physiology limited to medical physicians who wish to enhance and improve their skills. Course content is developed in cooperation with the Center for Continuing Medical Education. Ultra EMG is offered as a full six-day long course conveniently designed as two three-day long courses back-to-back - Ultra EMG I and Ultra EMG IIUltra EMG should be considered an intermediate to advanced course with basic sessions included in both I and II

Ultra EMG I includes introduction to electrodiagnosis, electrodiagnosis of neuromuscular disorders, applications of neuromuscular ultrasound, and chemodenervation.  Ultra EMG II includes electrodiagnosis of focal neuropathies and radiculopathies, refinement of electrodiagnostic techniques, introduction to musculoskeletal ultrasound, musculoskeletal ultrasound of the upper limb, and needle guidance with ultrasound.

Both Ultra EMG I and Ultra EMG II emphasize hands-on, practical sessions with some video presentations of electromyographic techniques, ultrasonography, and waveform analysis. Hands-on skills sessions and training tables provide opportunities for participants to interact with faculty on a daily basis in small groups.
