The Ultrasound Special Skills post at LMH is in place with a primary goal to enhance a trainee’s skills and knowledge in clinician performed point of care ultrasound. The post is typically held over 6 calendar months and involves half of the trainee’s time being spent in ultrasound training and half participating as a General Emergency Medicine Trainee.
The Ultrasound Trainee typically achieves proficiency in the “core” modules of EFAST, AAA, FELS, lung and procedural needle guidance. The trainee is encouraged to complete the CCPU in these modules during the term, but this is not mandatory. A research/quality improvement project is also expected during the term, often with poster publication at an appropriate conference.
Trainees who have already achieved core competency and certification, also have the opportunity to use the term to further enhance their ultrasound skills in most emergency applications including, but not limited to, vascular assessment, more comprehensive echocardiography, 1st trimester, ocular, regional analgesia, full abdominal scanning, musculoskeletal and soft tissue assessment. Training and guidance towards the managerial aspects of ultrasound including core medical informatics is also provided.
