Our residents graduate with certification in Emergency Ultrasound after doing four weeks of ultrasound during their training period. They complete at least 150 scans during their residency as outlined by ACEP guidelines. We also have had the opportunity to have rotating residents from other programs complete one month electives in Ultrasound. We have several ongoing US research projects and are in the process of starting several more.
We are active in training other faculty in US and have many other faculty who are near certification in Emergency Ultrasound.
Our department meets each Wednesday of every month for QA sessions. Sessions are typically held at 9:00 am in the Guss conference room. During these sessions interesting US scans are reviewed, and appropriate feedback is provided to residents and attendings. We have journal club incorporated into each QA session, during which time we review current literature pertinent to emergency ultrasound.
We are currently using Zonare z.one US machines in our departments as well as GE logics.
We look forward to many happy scanning days ahead!
