The 5,000 beds First Affiliated Hospital of Kunming Medical University

On 28 – 29 November 2023, NICCER joined forces with First Affiliated Hospital of Kunming Medical University to offer a RACEplus course in Kunming, China. This was the first time an Australian team visited Kunming to run a critical care echo course. The event attracted a lot of interest and had been oversubscribed. Unfortunately, we deliberately limited the number of participants to 40 in order to achieve the best learning outcomes. A substantial number of participants were from neighbouring cities, some travelling more than 300 km to attend the course.

With the help of trainers from other countries/areas, the course was extremely successful. Most participants who attended the course already have some background in echocardiography, and many pointed out that RACEplus has reinforced their skills and knowledge. We look forward to more collaborations with our Chinese colleagues.
