Integration of Ultrasound Into Medical School Curricula

This course convenes traditional and nontraditional imaging specialists to discuss the state of ultrasound in medical student education. By describing the current state and potential challenges, this activity hopes to bring awareness to those looking for the next steps in medical student ultrasound curricular development. Topics include model curriculum for ultrasound education—from student to fellow: setting the bar(s); changing culture at the local and national levels: a top-down approach; a bottom-up approach: how to get involved in the preclinical years; a bottom-up approach: how to get involved in the clinical years in medical school; how we assess ultrasound competency in undergraduate and graduate medical education; being prepared for the critical moments within medicine: a sonographic approach to common emergencies; institutionalizing the culture of ultrasound: a focused approach to centralizing resources and mentorship; and the future of point-of-care ultrasound.
