Pete
Croft, MD, FACEP
COURSE DIRECTOR
CO-DIRECTOR EMERGENCY ULTRASOUND

After a freak accident derailed his modeling career, Peter embraced ultrasound, training at MMC and MGH. A true triple threat, he originated the role of "Lung Ultrasound Instructor" at SCCM, and was the understudy for "Echo Teacher" in ACEP 2016. Another fondly remembered role was "Shock Instructor" at EUSEM in 2016 and 2017. He is big in Belgium like David Hasselhoff is in Germany. He thanks his wife and dogs for all their support. He is thrilled to reprise his role as PPOCUS co-director this year.

 A wannabe Quebecois, Dave fancies his Canadian education from McGill and McMaster University.  He kindly graced Brown and Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) with his presence before torpedoing to the Maine coast where he helps run a tight sonographic ship.  Come meet the guy whose colleagues affectionately call: Doctor Doppler.

Unforgettable face ... unforgettable teaching. On the road to becoming chief of EM at UVM Peter was a convert to point-of-care ultrasound. Now he travels the world teaching the splendors of sonography and ketogenic diets

Christina
Wilson, MD

MAINE MEDICAL CENTER
  • White Twitter Icon

Doctor, dancer, and standout sonographer, Christina completed residency and fellowship at MGH. Look for her in the Venn diagram where It Girl, Art School, and ultrasound education overlap, If you've never understood how to get echo windows, she'll fix that for you. 

Lyle
Gerety, MD
ASSISTANT PROFESSOR, ANESTHESIOLOGY
UNIVERSITY OF VERMONT MEDICAL CENTER

Lyle practices cardiac anesthesia and critical care at the University of Vermont. In his day job, he puts people to sleep and helps mend broken hearts. When he teaches ultrasound, it's the opposite.

Laurel
Parker, MD
MEDICAL DIRECTOR
DIRECTOR OF EMERGENCY ULTRASOUND
MAINE GENERAL MEDICAL CENTER

Laurel completed fellowship in emergency ultrasound at UConn. After that she rocketed up to MGH-Augusta. Wondering about ultrasound in community practice? She's got it covered.

Otto
Liebmann, MD
DIRECTOR OF EMERGENCY ULTRASOUND
RHODE ISLAND HOSPITAL
BROWN UNIVERSITY

Otto helped write the book on regional ultrasound in the ED while a fellow at Highland Hospital. He's a black belt in ultrasound, slide design, and a variety of other things...go ahead and ask.

Samuel
Licciardo, MD
DIRECTOR OF EMERGENCY ULTRASOUND
MILFORD MEDICAL CENTER

Renowned for his radio voice, outstanding teaching, and southpaw delivery, Sam has a particular interest in pediatric applications and global health. He is a recovering academic, now working in community practice. Want to know how to start a program from scratch? He's your guy.

Randy is the ultrasound fellow and an emergency medicine attending at Maine Medical Center. He is the most organized man alive.

Join us for our fifth annual point of care ultrasound course in Portland, Maine this September. This course provides an introduction to point-of-care ultrasound and the evidence for its use in emergency medicine, critical care medicine, and internal medicine. Participants will have extensive opportunity for hands-on practice of essential point-of-care ultrasound applications. We teach using live models and have an excellent faculty to student ratio. 

This year, we're excited to host DAY 2 of the course with

OXBOW BREWING COMPANY. This portion of the course concludes mid-day and will transition to lunch and quality local brews.

Ultrasound all-star. Karaoke legend. Understands the Barnum adage about always leave them wanting more. We cannot promise you a rendition of Don’t Stop Me Now at PPOCUS, but we can promise she will rocket your bedside echocardiography to the next level.

Lyle
Gerety, MD
ASSISTANT PROFESSOR,
ANESTHESIOLOGY & CRITICAL CARE
UNIVERSITY OF VERMONT MEDICAL CENTER

Last year we noted that Lyle puts people to sleep at work and fixes broken hearts, but that when he teaches, it’s the opposite.

This hasn’t changed.

PAUL
ATKINSON, MB, MA FRCPC CFEU
RESEARCH DIRECTOR
ST JOHNS REGIONAL HOSPITAL
DALHOUSIE UNIVERSITY

Blue pill: Paul teaches you ultrasound, drawing on decades of experience using POCUS at the bedside and as a researcher, most recently as PI of the SHoC-ED trial and a CJEM editor.

Red pill: he plays you Britney Spears backwards and your mind opens.

We suggest you take both pills.

Otto
Liebmann, MD
EMERGENCY ULTRASOUND FACULTY
RHODE ISLAND HOSPITAL
BROWN UNIVERSITY

Before moving to Brown, Otto was a product of the Highland emergency ultrasound empire. Highland is located in Oakland, and is to point-of-care ultrasound as Golden State is to the NBA. Which means that as Steph Curry is to 3 pointers, Otto is to ultrasound.

CREAGH
BOULGER, MD
ULTRASOUND FELLOWSHIP DIRECTOR
THE OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY

Award winning educator, past president of the SAEM Academy of Emergency Ultrasound, circus master, Buckeye. We’re certain she taught a young Pete Croft most of what he knows.

DAVID
LEWIS, MB, BS, FRCS FCEM, CFEU, PGDipSEM
EMERGENCY ULTRASOUD DIRECTOR
ST JOHNS REGIONAL HOSPITAL
DALHOUSIE UNIVERSITY

English gentleman.  Scholar.  Master ultrasound educator. Usually you have to pick two of three in these lists, like in real estate when you choose between location, quality, and great price. With David? You’re getting all three.

ALBERTO
GOFFI, MD
ASSISTANT PROFESSOR
CRITICAL CARE MEDICINE
ST MICHAEL'S HOSPITAL

Alberto is a critical care physician from the University of Toronto and a world expert in ICU ultrasound and POCUS  education. If there were ultrasound trading cards, Alberto would be like a Ken Griffey Jr rookie card, or a Charizard GX, and we’d do anything we could to get him. We’re delighted he’s back for this year’s course.

MARK 
HAMLIN, MD
VICE CHAIR
ANESTHESIA & CRITICAL CARE
UNIVERSITY OF VERMONT

His residents call him the Hammer. EPIC analysts call him the Hammer. Surgeons call him the Hammer. Rest assured there was no hammering at PPOCUS two years ago, just great ultrasound teaching. We’re thrilled to have him back.
