POCUS Mentorship Program

Grow your skills with ongoing hands-on, livestream remote video and mentored scanning sessions. Over the course of 6 months, live instruction will cover content customized to your needs across 5 key POCUS skills areas, including pulmonary, cardiac, kidney and bladder ultrasound, evaluation of abdomen for free fluid, and focused vascular evaluations of the lower extremity for deep venous thrombosis.

Continue your point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) learning and become more proficient in practice. This live, virtual course provides individual, longitudinal POCUS training through expert mentorship to help internists solidify and advance their skills building on training received from a ACPs POCUS: Foundational Skills for Internists course.  

Expert-led

Benefit from directly observed feedback, and high yield skills demonstrations.  Clinical Internal Medicine POCUS experts across the country will share perspectives on clinical integration and work closely with you to answer your questions regarding practical implementation.

Prerequisites:

  • Registrants of this course must have completed ACP’s POCUS: Foundational Skills for Internal Medicine Phisicians Course. An alternate 2-day course that included at least 50% hands-on scanning time, might also be accepted as a prerequisite. A certificate of course completion and course agenda must be submitted to [email protected] for approval.
  • In order to maximize hands-on instruction, participants are required to complete the ACP POCUS Online Learning Module #1-6 curriculum prior to beginning the course.

 

Ultrasound Equipment Requirements

After registering, you'll receive a confirmation email which will include a link to a questionnaire where you'll be asked which type of device you'll be using. This questionnaire should be completed within 3 days. Learners should have access to one of the following:

  • Philips Lumify (limited number of slots available)
  • EchoNous Kosmos – ACP also has a limited number of Kosmos devices to loan.
  • Butterfly (limited number of slots available)
  • Laptop or Cart-based System
  • If using a laptop or cart-based system, we recommend using a single brand/model for all sessions because sorting out the connection details for the live video feed is best done only once and will be necessary to test prior to registering.
  • Your laptop or cart-based system must have "video-out" capability. That is typically accomplished by a video-out port on the back of the machine/cart in the form of an HDMI, DVI, or, less likely, a VGA port. Sometimes this port is hidden under a cover or involves connecting the laptop to a docking station. Most modern devices have video-out capability, however older machines may not be able to output the video feed live from the ultrasound and will not work for this course.
  • For learners using cart-based/laptop ultrasound machines (not a Philips Lumify or EchoNous Kosmos), the interaction will require a laptop computer with 2 or more USB ports and video output via HDMI, VGA, or DVI
  • ACP will provide a POCUS Connect Box (accessories needed to connect).

 

Ultrasound Models

  • Participants will be responsible for obtaining a live model to scan during the sessions. Live models will be required to sign an Model Release form.
