The University of South Carolina once again hosted the incredible World CongressÂ on Ultrasound in Medical Education in Columbia. Dean Richard Hoppmann hosted over 100 faculty and hundreds of attendees, with dozens of countries represented.
Mount Sinai emergency ultrasound director Bret Nelson gave a plenary talk on the use of ultrasound in remote environments, from the battlefield to the International Space Station.
Pediatric emergency medicine ultrasound director Jim Tsung led a well-attended course on pediatric ultrasound, along with Ee Tay.
Mount Sinai emergency ultrasound fellow Amy Sanghvi presented an abstract on a novel interdepartmental ultrasound education project. Obstetric and emergency medicine interns learned pelvic ultrasound through a combination of didactics, online tutorials, hands-on skill stations with live models and several types of simulators, then underwent an OSCE for competency assessment and completed an online interactive question bank.
There were far too many ultrasound visionaries to list them all here. Here we have Mike Mallin and Matt Dawson (of Ultrasound Podcast fame) and Vicki Noble (ultrasound director at MGH and thoracic ultrasound guru) making sure Bret’s seersucker was for real.
