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
