Overview:

The UCSF Point-of-Care Ultrasound (POCUS) for the Hospitalist Workshop is a hands-on experience to learn the techniques of bedside ultrasound. Live demonstrations, case review, and didactics will complement hours of hands-on practice sessions. Participants will gain the skills, knowledge, and confidence to integrate bedside ultrasound into clinical practice.

The workshop is designed to maximize the participant’s time practicing ultrasound skills on live models. The groups will have a small ratio of participants learning (3:1 at hands on stations) from experienced instructors who utilize POCUS in their hospital medicine practices. The curriculum will be based on practical skills needed for the hospitalized patient with a focus on protocols and cases that underscore how POCUS can be applicable in real world scenarios. Specifically the participant will learn to obtain imaging of the heart, lungs, abdominal organs, and vascular structures with time to practice interpretation of normal and abnormal images and discussion of clinical applicability. Attendees will learn appropriate ultrasound guided technique for procedures such as thoracentesis, central venous access, and paracentesis with time for questions and answers. The workshop ends with a special session on program developmetn and ecomonics of POCUS.

This course is an “Approved 2-day POCUS Course” for the SHM POCUS Certificate of Completion https://www.hospitalmedicine.org/clinical-topics/ultrasonography-cert/
