Chris Eddy

Chris is an ultrasound technologist in Vancouver, BC, and has been based in the field for over 12 years. Beginning in 2007, he noticed a gap in the ultrasound skills of the UBC Radiology residents. He initiated, built and now presents half-day and full-day hands-on ultrasound sessions, and these sessions are tailored towards the experience level and knowledge base of the residents. Courses range from “Introduction to On-Call Ultrasound” for the first year residents to “Advanced Doppler Applications in Liver & Kidney Transplants” for the 5th year residents. Chris was the first non-physician in Canada to be certified by the CEUS ( Canadian Emergency Ultrasound Society) as an Independent Practitioner, which allows him to teach bedside ultrasound skills to Emergency Physicians. He is also on the CEUS Board of Advisors, and co-authored the Emergency Department Echo (EDE) Level-3 – Emergency Third Trimester Obstetrical Procedures course. Most recently, Chris been working with the UBC CPD (Continuing Professional Development ) on some of their ultrasound training courses for physicians – including Obstetrical and Shock. He is also co-author of the Ultrasound Guided Emergency Medicine Procedures (UGEMP) course, which focuses on using ultrasound for bedside interventional procedures.
