Point of Care Ultrasound Training as a Method for Reinforcing Anatomy and Physiology Concepts


Wake Forest has developed and implemented a vertically integrated point of care ultrasound curriculum for students throughout their medical school experience with the goal of extending instruction in anatomy and physiology beyond the traditional curriculum. We describe our curriculum development process and the structure for this course material as well as early results from our student experience survey data.
