Ultrasound Pathway


Point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) is rapidly becoming an important tool in patient diagnostics and safety. At Highland many of us have had great success in using POCUS to make quick, real-time decisions about our patient’s care. The Internal Medicine Ultrasound Pathway teaches residents in the use of POCUS by hands-on instruction, independent learning and practice, and teaching colleagues. Our goal is to have residents graduate with the skills required to integrate POCUS into patient care with confidence.
