Point of Care Ultrasound (POCUS) Interest Group, London

Campus: 
London
Type: 
Educational

Our goal is to introduce Schulich medical students to the use of ultrasound at the point of care. Ultrasound is a non-invasive and inexpensive tool playing an increasingly important role across many medical and surgical specialities. With the support of enthusiastic clinicians and residents, our group aims to provide students with hands-on experiences to demonstrate just how much you can learn about a patient’s health using sound waves. Events will align with teachings in the preclinical years such that students will be able to see recently learned anatomy, physiology and pathology come to life. Some of our upcoming events include: 

  • Intro to POCUS + FAST Exam (Focused Assessment with Sonography for Trauma, a POCUS examination performed at the time of presentation of a trauma patient) 
  • POCUS Cardiac Exam
  • POCUS Abdominal Exam
  • POCUS AAA Exam
