Point-of-Care Ultrasound in Medical Education – Stop Listening and Look

A generation of physicians will need to be trained to view this technology as an extension of their senses, just as many generations have viewed the stethoscope. That development will require the medical education community to embrace and incorporate the technology throughout the curriculum.

Feasibility and Accuracy of Point-of-Care Pocket-Size Ultrasonography Performed by Medical Students

Medical students with minimal training were able to use a Pocket-Size Imaging Device (PSID) as a supplement to standard physical examination and successfully acquire acceptable relevant organ recordings for presentation and correctly interpret these with great accuracy.

Seeing is Believing – Evaluating a Point-of-Care Ultrasound Curriculum for 1st-Year Medical Students

Students and faculty valued the curriculum, and students demonstrated basic competency in performance and interpretation of ultrasound.
Further study is needed to determine how to best incorporate this emerging technology into a robust learning experience for medical students.

Development and Evaluation of Methodologies for Teaching Focused Cardiac Ultrasound Skills to Medical Students

Third-year medical students were able to acquire Focused Cardiac Ultrasound (FCU) image acquisition and interpretation skills after a novel training program. Self-directed electronic modules are effective for teaching introductory FCU interpretation skills, while expert-guided training is important for developing scanning technique
