The Department of Emergency Medicine's commitment to excellence in emergency medicine training includes educating residents in the performance of core and advanced ultrasound exams in the care for our patients. There are many opportunities for the resident to get involved within our curriculum and we believe that all future EM physicians can master this technology with guidance, mentorship and the opportunities to deliberately practice this psychomotor skill.
Ultrasound is an integral tool for emergency physicians and a strong focus of the Emergency Medicine residency at The Ohio State University. Residents have a longitudinal ultrasound experience, with both a dedicated longitudinal curriculum and integration into clinical shifts.
Our program is at the cutting edge, with up-to-date ultrasound machines, wireless connectivity and a state-of-the-art skills training area. Leading faculty have championed training and use of ultrasound in emergency medicine and critical care at this facility and worldwide. Upon graduation, our residents become credentialed in emergency indications for ultrasound and many have taken positions as ultrasound directors at their new facilities.
Ultrasound training includes:
- US Guided Procedures
- Transabdominal for Pregnancy
