What Makes NYSORA’s Workshops Boutique?

What makes NYSORA’s Boutique Workshops so popular is the combination of an immersive experience, standardized and highly practical instructing methods, and a multitude of teaching equipment and cognitive aids. The delegates are immersed into a multimedia experience with streaming content from NYSORA’s new Compendium of Regional Anesthesia.

The NYSORA’s Compendium features standardized content so that instructions are identical, regardless of the instructor teams or locations.

“With the release of the new NYSORA Compendium of Regional Anesthesia, we have standardized the presentations at all NYSORA workshops. The Compendium features complete training programs with all NYSORA’s illustrations, animations and clinica videos, as well as 3D anatomy. This has substantially enhanced the didactic part of the program, standardized it, and simplified the workshop delivery by eliminating slide presentations altogether.” – said Dr. Hadzic, NYSORA’s director.

 Throughout the workshop, the delegates take turns in discussions, scanning, practicing techniques on NYSORA simulators, 3-D anatomy dissections, and knowledge assessments without wasting a second. Throughout the program, NYSORA’s proprietary Reverse Ultrasound Anatomy illustrations and animations are used to help understand the principles of practice and to assure knowledge acquisition and retention. Since their introduction 2 decades ago, NYSORA’s signature workshops have been the front runner in ultrasound-guided regional anesthesia for years, and a template adopted by many teaching entities worldwide.

WHO NEEDS WORKSHOPS WHEN EVERYTHING IS ONLINE?

Point of care ultrasound is becoming the gold standard worldwide. However, the training in this rapidly advancing field lags substantially behind the developments of many new procedures and approaches. In addition, many practitioners may have completed their anesthesiology training before the ultrasound revolution, and being left out, they have a pressing need to jumpstart the use of ultrasound in their clinical practices.

This is why NYSORA created its BOUTIQUE and ESSENTIAL workshops with a focus on a pragmatic, standardized, boot camp-like approach for accelerated learning. NYSORA workshops are based on NYSORA’s original 5-step learning approach to expedite the acquisition of skills and their application into their practice upon return from the workshop. While some learning can occur by accessing the plethora of information online, nothing comes close to a personalized approach to training to accomplish all 5 stages necessary to quickly learn point of care ultrasound.

Through unique, interactive exercises, NYSORA’s instructors ensure that everyone truly understands the material, and won’t stop until the results are apparent.

With over two decades of experience, the NYSORA workshops offer a practical approach, based firmly on the acquisition of real, usable knowledge for its participants that can be built on further for years to come. 

NYSORA has just opened a 500 sm2 hypermodern, multimedia facility in Leuven, Belgium for its second Academy, a sister facility to NYSORA’s New York location. This way, NYSORA adds its own imprint to Leuven, a town of historical architecture and a hot-spot for medical innovation in Europe.

Beyond the teaching approach offered to each doctor, NYSORA workshops have much more to offer. NYSORA-exclusive ultrasound simulation machines are on-hand for all participants to build on their skills on the spot. Furthermore, the ultrasound machines used at our Boutique workshops are fitted with special programs that offer interactive tasks, challenging participants to recreate images precisely – a surefire way to ensure knowledge retention that is unique to NYSORA. Our touch-screen technology allows instructors and delegates to draw over ultrasound images, and our reverse ultrasound anatomy images, specific to NYSORA, make the connection between ultrasound and human anatomy perfectly clear.

NYSORA offers a unique experience through proprietary content and learning techniques. The solidity of structure, equipment and approaches, and consistent messages offer real value to each delegate. The delegates are given the tools they need to perfect their technique in crash-course format and transfer these skills to their daily practice.
