Point-of-Care Ultrasound (POCUS) Operations currently serve at seven clinical sites. In 2021, over 4,300 clinically indicated exams were performed. Ultrasound has increased collaboration with Trauma Surgery which has allowed the division to increase consistency of FAST exam and conduct a quality assurance project: Use of POCUS in Traumatic Cardiac Arrest. The division is invested in bringing state-of-the-art technology to clinical providers, such as a new 3D printer.


The Division of Ultrasound presents a robust education program within the department of Emergency Medicine. The division has received a 3-year EUFAC designation and offers resident Ultrasound track matching.
