Venue / Accommodation / Travel

The GE Nordic User Days 2017 will take place in Oslo, the easy-going capital of Norway. Oslo has new neighbourhoods with eye-catching architecture popping up all the time. It is quickly transforming into a cosmopolitan centre with plenty of world-class museums, restaurants, and art, while still maintaining the relaxed atmosphere of a much smaller town.

The city is nestled between the Oslofjord and hundreds of square kilometres of forested hills. The city centre is easy to explore on foot and an efficient public transport system makes the city easily accessible without a car.

Combine the upgrade of your ultrasound skills with a few days in Oslo and enjoy the friendly atmosphere in one of Europe’s fastest-growing cities.
 
The venue for GE Nordic User Days 2017 is the GE Healthcare office i Oslo: Vitaminveien 1, 0485 Oslo.
 

Accommodation suggestions

The hotel closest to the GE Healthcare office is Radisson Blu Hotel Nydalen (5 min walk from the course venue).

If you prefer to stay somewhere else, there is a hotel booking service on the Visit Oslo website.

Challenges in Point-of-Care

Acute intervention. Chronic patient management. Needle Guidance… Action-oriented patient care. When physicians who use ultrasound at the point of care met with GE scientists, they asked for a system designed for immediate-action workflow, bright-room operation, and precise guidance… throughout the facility…

See clearly. See quickly. Guide precisely. Those were the values users requested that drove the creation of our GE Point of Care Ultrasound products.
