Medicus of Houston, located in Houston, Texas, is North America's premier provider of live, advanced ECG interpretation education. Founded in 2011 by Jerry W. Jones, MD FACEP FAAEM as a means to improve the ECG interpretation skills of physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and other healthcare providers, Medicus of Houston has become known world-wide for the intensity of its instruction and the individual attention to each participant that can only be provided in a small conference setting.
The classes are conducted in "boot camp" fashion: hours are from 8 am to 5 pm for four consecutive days. Teaching methods utilize didactic instruction, animations and multimedia presentations. Individual participation is required, with up to fourteen hours of active participation by each person attending the class, including interpretation of real ECGs under the guidance and tutelage of experts. Participants especially benefit from the ample time to ask any questions they may have at any time.
Continuing education credits are provided through joint-sponsorships with the University of Texas Medical Branch - Galveston and the American Association of Nurse practitioners.
Although the courses offered by Medicus of Houston are primarily for those residing in North America, participants frequently come from other countries world-wide for the intense instruction. Seats in the classes are very coveted and the classes tend to fill quickly. Each boot camp is strictly limited to a maximum of ten participants.
