Point of Care Ultrasound
Our residents who are interested in procedurally focused subspecialties post-graduation or those with plans to pursue primary care or hospital medicine can opt to participate in a longitudinal POCUS curriculum where they learn to acquire and interpret focused cardiac, pulmonary, vascular and procedural ultrasound images. Residents practice integrating this information into their clinical management decisions. Residents are provided access to simulation modules from SonoSim, which include didactic instruction as well as image acquisition and interpretation practice. Residents also attend regular Gel Rounds with one of our POCUS trained Hospitalists where they obtain hands-on training with patients on their own teams to reinforce skills learned.
