This point-of-care ultrasound elective will offer medical students the opportunity to build a solid foundation of knowledge of emergency ultrasound. Students will perform supervised diagnostic ultrasound exams and supervised ultrasound-guided procedures on patients in the emergency department. Students will attend didactic sessions and participate in the review of recent medical literature pertaining to point-of-care ultrasound.
