Abstract

The clinical applications of point-of-care ultrasound (US) have expanded rapidly over the past decade. To promote early exposure to point-of-care US, there is widespread support for the integration of US curricula within undergraduate medical education. However, despite growing evidence and enthusiasm for point-of-care US education in undergraduate medical education, the curricular design and delivery across undergraduate medical education programs remain variable without widely adopted national standards and guidelines. This article highlights the educational and teaching applications of point-of-care US with a focus on outcomes. We then review the evidence on curricular design, delivery, and integration and the assessment of competency for point-of-care US in undergraduate medical education.
