Course Description:

The use of point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) is quickly becoming a necessary tool for future internists and subspecialists. However, incorporating POCUS training into a residency training program can be challenging. This on-line course provides participants with the knowledge and skills to initiate or further develop a POCUS training program for residents. Topics covered include stakeholder support, financial and logistical challenges, securing resources, training faculty, teaching methods, and curricular models. Educational sessions will include general and interactive small group sessions. The course concludes with a panel of faculty with expertise in implementing POCUS training programs to address challenges and questions from the audience.


Upon completion of this online course, participants will be able to:

  • Define the aims of implementing a POCUS training program.
  • Identify resources necessary to initiate a POCUS training program for your residents.
  • Develop an effective pitch to garner stakeholder support.
  • Design a curricular model that fits the aims of your POCUS program.
  • Address common challenges and pitfalls to implementing and expanding a POCUS program.

Who Should Attend:

POCUS educational directors, PDs, APDs, and any core faculty who want to start a POCUS training program or are in the early stages of implementing a POCUS training program. This course is not intended to teach POCUS skills to attendees.
