Objective. Ultrasound is a versatile diagnostic modality used in a variety of medical fields. Wayne State University School of Medicine (WSUSOM) is one of the first medical schools in the United States to integrate an ultrasound curriculum through both basic science courses and clinical clerkships. Methods. In 2006, 25 portable ultrasound units were donated to WSUSOM. First‐year medical students were provided an ultrasound curriculum consisting of 6 organ‐system sessions that addressed the… Expand
The State of Ultrasound Education in U.S. Medical Schools: Results of a National Survey
TLDR
A need for national standards to guide the integration of ultrasound education into U.S. schools is indicated, as a general consensus that ultrasound is an important skill to teach in medical school, is highly variable. Expand
