The use of point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) has shown clinical benefit to patient care within the field of internal medicine. It is being integrated rapidly into internal
medicine across the longitudinal training spectrum—through clinical curricula at both UME and GME levels.
To support successful integration of POCUS across longitudinal training, an Alliance member work group published in AJM a white paper of fundamental concepts for consideration. These include curriculum design, teaching methods, and resource availability. The Alliance supports the integration of POCUS within the training environment, and training programs looking to incorporate POCUS training into the curricula should be supported.
