(MENAFN - The Peninsula) Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC) has become the first medical facility in the region to be recognised as a centre for emergency ultrasound training.

The recognition was made at an award ceremony, attended by officials from HMC and Canadian Emergency Ultrasound Society (CEUS).

The training centre status follows the successful completion of four Emergency Department Echo/Ultrasound (EDE) courses offered at HMC since March 2013.

They were the initiative of specialists, including Hamad General Hospital's (HGH) Specialist in Emergency Medicine, Dr Aftab Mohamad Azad, the first Qatari to complete the North American Emergency Medicine Training Program,e. Director of Montreal-based General Hospital, Dr Joel Turner, and HGH's Emergency Medicine Senior Consultant and Emergency Medicine Residency Programme Director, Dr Azhar Abdul Aziz.

Fifty-five emergency physicians, including 48 from HMC and seven from Oman, Kuwait and the UAE, completed the courses.

Ten HMC emergency physicians were honoured at the ceremony as 'Independent Practitioners', a role which means they can continue to offer training to other physicians in Qatar.

CEUS President Dr Peter oss said: "It is an honour to inaugurate the first CEUS training centre outside Canada, in the Middle East. We are proud of the fact that CEUS has the highest standards of training not only in Canada but around the world.


"We share HMC's vision to enhance competencies of its residents and faculty members, and we will continue efforts to reach the ultimate goal for every physician - to offer the best patient care."

The course, which has been taught to over 10,000 physicians internationally, enables physicians to rapidly diagnose critical illnesses for patients who come to emergency departments, often with life-threatening and serious medical problems.

Dr Azad, designated to be the first regional director for CEUS in the Middle East, said: "This is a great achievement for us since we as a team at HMC are always working to improve ourselves in every aspect, which is reflected in better care for our patients.

"We constantly encourage each other to improve and discover better ways to practise."

He stressed that in emergency medicine decisions are often paired with urgency and critical thinking, so every modality of diagnosing signs makes a tremendous difference to results.
