Rural Independent Practitioner Program (RIPP)

The Rural Independent Practitioner Program (RIPP) offers rural courses for clinicians that find it difficult to achieve CORE IP certification because they work in a rural area, have no one to supervise required scans, and are unable to find coverage when away at an ultrasound course.

RIPP courses are organized by a private company separate from CPoCUS (CPoCUS does not offer courses).

RIPP courses help achieve CPoCUS IP certification after completing a CPoCUS-accredited introductory course (for available introductory courses, browse Courses and Workshops here).

RIPP courses take place over 4 days at the rural clinician's facility.

For detailed instructions on how to host a course, please contact the RIPP Coordinator, Mr. Dalmar Lynds, at
