Description

(1) Complete Online Learning Modules (a) Principles, Knobology, Artifacts (i) Trainees will learn basic principles of ultrasound, artifact, and knobology via online learning module. (ii) After learning the online module, they will check their understanding by Quizzes (post-test). (b) Focused Cardiac Ultrasound (FoCUS) (i) Trainees will learn focused cardiac ultrasound via online learning module. (ii) After learning the on-line module, they will check their understanding by Quizzes (post-test). (c) Lung and Thoracic Ultrasound (i) Trainees will learn basic principles of lung and thoracic ultrasound, particularly with BLUE-protocol via online learning module. (ii) After learning the online module, they will check their understanding by Quizzes (post-test). (d) Abdominal Ultrasound (i) Trainees will learn essential abdominal ultrasound, particularly with the concept of FAST examination via online learning module. (ii) After learning the online module, they will check their understanding by Quizzes (post-test). (e) Vascular Ultrasound (i) Trainees will learn vascular diagnostic ultrasound, mainly assessment of venous thromboembolic disease. (ii) After learning the online module, they will check their understanding by Quizzes (post-test). (f) Assessment of Shock (i) Trainees will learn assessment of shock by point-of-care ultrasound. This should be learnt upon understanding (a) – (e) as they learn how we incorporate image acquisition and interpretation into clinical integration.

Objectives

(2) Complete Hands-on Training (2-3 hours) (a) Cardiac Examination (i) Trainees will learn 5 basic views (parasternal long and short axis view, apical four chamber view, subcostal four chamber and IVC view) via hands-on training supervised by myself and/or by other instructor(s) (b) Lung Examination (i) Trainees will learn 3 images: lung sliding with A-lines, Right hemidiaphragm, Left hemidiaphragm) via hands-on training supervised by myself and/or by other instructor(s) (c) Abdominal Examination (i) Trainees will learn 4 images (1) RUQ: Liver, hepatorenal recess, Right kidney, (2) LUQ, Spleen, splenorenal recess, Left Kidney, (3) Abdominal Aorta (longitudinal) view, (4) Bladder – Transverse via hands-on training supervised by myself and/or by other instructor(s). (d) Vascular Examination (i) Trainees will learn vascular diagnostics by hands-on training – femoral vein and internal jugular vein – supervised by myself and/or by other instructor(s) (3) Complete Image Portfolio: 14 images for one case, total of 2 cases (total 14 images x 2 = 28 images) Trainees will obtain images as delineated below from patients they examine. Each image will be de-identified and then sent to me for further evaluation – each image will be assessed with comments – and if not meeting criteria, they are asked to redo the images as needed. (a) Cardiac (5 images: Parasternal long axis, Parasternal short axis, Apical 4 chamber view, Subcostal 4 chamber view, Subcostal IVC view) (b) Lung (3 images: lung sliding with A-lines, Right hemidiaphragm, Left hemidiaphragm) (c) Abdomen (4 images (1) RUQ: Liver, hepatorenal recess, Right kidney, (2) LUQ, Spleen, splenorenal recess, Left Kidney, (3) Abdominal Aorta (longitudinal) view, (4) Bladder - Transverse) (d) Vascular (2 images, (1) Common Femoral Vein with compression, (2) Popliteal vein with compression) If trainee fulfills all the criteria (1) - (3), then can proceed to the examinations (4) and (5): Final Examinations: Knowledge and Image interpretation examinations are performed online with multiple-choice format. Details are shown below. To pass each examination, trainees need to answer at least 80% correctly. Upon completion of knowledge and image interpretation examinations, trainees proceed to the final skill examination, which will be test their skills by observing their scanning of a model.
