09:00 - 17:00


This exclusive 2-day hands-on practical workshop provides an excellent opportunity to practice ultrasound-guided peripheral joint and soft tissue injections on soft embalmed cadavers. This unique blended learning course offers a combination of hands-on and online learning. Participants will have 1 year access to our eLearning platform with 43 online videos totaling to 5 hours of on-demand content.

This course will enable you to learn and practice practical injection skills on upper and lower limb peripheral joint and soft tissue structures on cadaveric specimens under the close supervision of experienced tutors. There will be a maximum of three participants per ultrasound machine and a high tutor to participant ratio, enabling maximal learning and uptake of important injection skills.



This practical course will develop the theoretical concepts discussed in the SonoSkills elearning musculoskeletal injection course. This 5-hour online course is included in the registration and participants will have access for 6 months starting on the first course day..


Injection therapy is an important adjunct for the physician or surgeon who manages patients with musculoskeletal conditions. Ultrasound-guidance provides more accuracy and therefore more efficacy and cost-effectiveness compared to landmark-guided injections.


  • Describe and practice needle visualization techniques 
  • Describe probe and patient positioning for basic peripheral joint and soft tissue injections in the upper and lower limb 
  • Perform basic injection techniques of peripheral joints and soft tissues in a safe manner in the upper and lower limb
  • Appreciate the complexities of injection therapy in clinical practice including potential pitfalls 


It is strongly advised that you complete a basic (elearning) MSK ultrasound prior to attending this course to maximize the learning of important concepts.
