Dr. Mickley leads a new POCUS elective

The EMED 705K course, led by Megan Mickley MD, Director of Pediatric Emergency Ultrasound and Assistant Professor in the Depts. of Emergency Medicine & Pediatrics, and MS4 Evan Foulke, will be leading a collaboration among POCUS instructors from the Emergency medicine, Internal medicine and Family medicine Departments and medical student POCUS "superusers." Both didactic and hands-on skill sessions will be taught during an 8-week POCUS elective for MS2 students. We hope this will continue to promote interdisciplinary POCUS teaching and learning within the healthcare system.

Elective details are as follows:

  • 8 x 1-hour (12p-1p) Wednesday POCUS lunch series during the fall (late Sep-early Dec) at CLSB
  • Students will be provided with weekly asynchronous learning to prepare for each class
  • Each session will be a brief 15-20 min didactic followed by a 40-min hands-on skills session
  • Final session an OSCE to assess the students' progress
  • Pre- and post-course written assessments
  • Goal of 2+ faculty at each session, joined by some MS POCUS "superusers" to help
