CSC Lunch & Learn: Scott Kelley, MD

12:00 PM to 1:00 PM

Point of Care Ultrasound Curriculum at One Year: Family Medicine at UM

UM Family Medicine built a Point-of-Care Ultrasound (POCUS) curriculum, beginning in earnest in 2021. All family medicine residents received POCUS didactics, and three PGY-3 residents participated in an intensive year-long POCUS track. A retrospective study was performed reviewing scans logged during the inaugural track year from July 1, 2021 through June 30, 2022 in three ambulatory family medicine clinics.


A total of 577 POCUS scans were performed on 541 patients in three outpatient family medicine clinics over 12 months. The most common scans were soft tissue (26.5%), musculoskeletal (24.4%), obstetric (9.7%), cardiac (7.6%), and abdominal aortic aneurysm screen (6.6%). The three POCUS track residents scanned 225 patients (42.1% of encounters). Non-track residents (36 residents) scanned 64 patients (11.9%).

 In this talk, we will discuss the initiative.

To promote collaboration and best practices in simulation-based education and research, the UMCSC is hosting a monthly Lunch and Learn Series. The series is intended to allow all University faculty, staff, and learners the opportunity to learn and share best practices in simulation-based education and assessment. The series offers something for everyone, with a broad range of topics relating to simulation-based education in medicine.  Presentations will range from projects considered “in-development” from junior educators/researchers to presentations about successfully implemented curricula from the CSC Core faculty. Each session offers attendees the opportunity to gain insights and contribute to a dynamic discussion in a non-intimidating, friendly setting.

UMCSC Lunch and Learn Series is scheduled from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. monthly on select days in the Clinical Simulation Center

For any inquiries/comments, or you would like to present at the CSC L&L Series, please contact Deb Rooney, Director of Education and Research, Clinical Simulation Center ([email protected](link is external)(link is external)).
