SEMCME Foundations for Surgical Ultrasound Basic Knowledge and Scanning Skills for Surgical Residents
November 20, 2020 & December 4, 2020 - Four Offerings (1/2 day each) • 8:00 am - 12:00 noon and 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
This highly "hands-on" competency-based Course will provide SEMCME surgical residents (PGY 1 & 2) with an experience in basic ultrasound concepts and techniques. The half-day course will employ a variety of teaching methods including didactic sessions, demonstrations, and hands-on learning. Residents will gain valuable experience practicing ultrasound techniques while performing standardized simulation tasks on bench models and standardized patients.
Highlights of the Course:
- 3 clinical applications: Neck anatomy for inline placement; Gallbladder imaging; Trauma FAST examination
- 4 hour session with practice time for individuals on all tasks
- Biopsy Techniques
- Simulated tasks on models
- Favorable instructor/resident ratio
- Optimal trainee per session with appropriate number of ultrasound machines
- Pre and post testing
Trainees should be at the PGY 1 & 2 level with little of no formal ultrasound training
At the conclusion of the course, residents will be able to demonstrate:
- familiarity with core ultrasound theory that directly supports image acquisition and interpretation
- familiarity with core ultrasound engineering that directly supports image acquisition & interpretation
- basic scanning skills with image acquisition
- basic documentation and standard image capture skills
- appropriate transducer choices and machine settings for each clinical application
- appropriate patient positioning and transducer orientation for scanning in each clinical application
- knowledge of and the ability to produce the critical views specific for each clinical application
These hands-on courses are presented by experienced surgery faculty from Wayne State University School of Medicine. Dr. Michael White is the Course Director. He is currently an Associate Professor of Surgery (Clinician Educator) at WSUSOM, Director of the Burn Unit at Detroit Receiving Hospital, and the Associate Program Director of the General Surgery Residency Program.
The Course will take place in the Kado Clinical Skills Center located in the Mazurek Education Commons at WSUSOM. The address is 320 East Canfield, Detroit, MI 48201. A map with parking information will be sent to registrants via your residency coordinator
There is no online registration for these courses. Please see your residency coordinator to sign up for one of the four offered courses.
