About us

Dear Colleagues, IUPA – Interventional Ultrasound Portuguese Academy – is a multidisciplinary medical group dedicated to teaching the best practices in musculoskeletal ultrasound-guided intervention. Counting with medical doctors from diverse specialties as Sports Medicine, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Anesthesiology and Radiology, this Academy aims to be a multi-specialty forum and learning platform. We’re sure that we’ll improve the knowledge and the level of Portuguese MSK US guided interventions by sharing the diverse approaches of different medical specialties of the same MSK pathologies.

It is with a great pleasure that we present the 1st IUPA course called “Sports & Pain Ultrasound Intervention Course” to be held on 22nd and 23rd of November at Centriq, Queijas-Lisbon.
