Sacha Weill, Daniel Armand Picard, Daniel J. Kim MD, Michael Y. Woo MD – Point of care ultrasound (POCUS) in Canadian undergraduate medical education (UGME) is limited. To address this paucity, the inaugural Seguin Canadian POCUS Education Conference hosted 14 of the 17 Canadian medical schools to develop a list of recommendations for POCUS education in Canadian UGME.
Katie Rong, MD; Grace Lee, BS; Meghan Kelly Herbst, MD – Implementation of point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) in undergraduate medical education (UME) has increased due to a growing appreciation for its value to students as a tool for learning anatomy, enhancing data acquisition during the physical exam, and formulating a diagnosis.

Rendon, MD; Christine Kulstad, MD; Bryant Dixon, MD; Kristie Pham Tu; Aman Narayan; Hunter Pyle; Khiem Hoang; Anthony Han; Dalbir Bahga MD; Aman Pandey, MD; Lynn Roppolo, MD – Point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) is used by emergency physicians to make rapid critical diagnoses in the emergency department (ED) . POCUS is now being incorporated into medical student patient assessment curricula [2, 3]. Several studies have demonstrated the feasibility of medical students using POCUS and have included teaching multiple POCUS applications to medical students simultaneously [2,4,5]. However, there are few studies demonstrating medical students’ ability to accurately perform POCUS on pediatric patients and these studies have typically included one POCUS application taught at a time [6-9].
