Ultrasound Interest Group

The goal of the Ultrasound Interest Group is to provide hands-on ultrasound experience to medical students. Throughout the semester, the USIG hosts meetings where clinical faculty from varied disciplines share how they use ultrasound in their practice. Following these meetings, USIG provides student-led "open ultrasound" periods where students can practice their newly-learned skills in small groups. The USIG is not meant to be a formal training program, it is simply a way for interested students to become acquainted with the machines. Since point-of-care ultrasound is quickly becoming a valuable part of every specialty, all students can benefit from the skills they learn as part of this group.
