AACES was formed on the 1st of July 2014, and its website launched on the 1st of January 2015.
We started as a group of physicians interested in point of care ultrasound in Alexandra Hospital. In Feb 2008, Dr Francis Lee brought into Singapore the WINFOCUS basic ultrasound life support course, which became one of the first WINFOCUS course conducted in Asia.
Since then, we have successfully organized and conducted at least 20 point of care ultrasound courses in Singapore. With succint lectures and a focus on hands-on training, these courses have been very well received, both in the country and the region.
