Our goal is for our residents to learn to acquire and interpret focused cardiac, pulmonary, abdominal, vascular (DVT), and procedural ultrasound images.

Curriculum includes:

Didactic Lectures: We provide the residents with a small lecture on the upcoming weekly topic which includes review of anatomy, approach to image acquisition, and interpretation of common pathological findings.

Hands-on Practice:

  • Biweekly hourly sessions on Fridays to practice with live models image acquisition and interpretation.
  • Selected procedure-based sessions to practice common bedside procedures such as central line insertion, paracentesis, thoracentesis, peripheral IVs and knee arthrocentesis
