Finding Time and Money for Ultrasound Education


A survey of medical school curricular administrators (with a 61% response rate) found that although 62% reported that there was some required or elective exposure to ultrasound in their curriculum, only a very small minority reported that they trained students to obtain ultrasound scans.  Seventy-nine percent felt that ultrasound instruction should be part of the undergraduate medical curriculum, but many found that a lack of time in the curriculum and lack of financial resources were major barriers to providing this instruction. — Laura Willett, MD
