Quicker and safer than other screening modalities, ultrasound allows the clinician to use a focused diagnostic modality directly at the patient’s bedside.
The use of ultrasound at the point of care has been expanding, prompting ACP to partner with leading organizations in the field. ACP has teamed up with the American Institute of Ultrasound Medicine (AIUM) and the Society for Ultrasound in Medical Education (SUSME) to develop Ultrasound CME educational training opportunities to promote the appropriate use of ultrasound.
July 21-23, 2018
ACP members receive the AIUM member rate when registering with code ACP250.
Thursday, August 16, 2018, 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EDT
Our ongoing education programs include live ultrasound webinars, live ultrasound courses and a library of recorded ultrasound webinars.

Getting a CLUE - Pearls and Pitfalls (56:22) Recorded June 7, 2017
Bruce Kimura, MD
In this video, Bruce Kimura, MD, explains the concepts of cardiac limited ultrasound examination (CLUE) in point-of-care ultrasound diagnostic evaluation; discusses pearls and common pitfalls to CLUE; and demonstrates the use of CLUE on a clinical case of dyspnea and hypotension.
Ultrasound to Manage Acute Dyspnea at the Bedside (53:22) Recorded December 22, 2016
Dana Resop, MD
In this video, Dana Resop, MD, discusses the benefits of bedside point-of-care ultrasound vs. other imaging modalities in the acutely dyspneic patient; explains how to apply an algorithmic approach of ultrasound lung artifacts to determine the cause of acute dyspnea; and describes how ultrasound evaluation of cardiac, deep veins, and inferior vena cava can add to lung ultrasound in determining causes of dyspnea.
Internal Medicine Point-of-Care Ultrasound - A Weekend on the Wards (56:38) Recorded June 28, 2016
Renee Dversdal, MD
Renee Dversdal, MD, discusses the use of point-of-care/beside ultrasound. In this webinar, she covers the use of point-of-care (POCUS) ultrasound for diagnosis versus monitoring of treatment; shares at least five POCUS applications pertinent to the care of Internal medicine patients; and describes at least two POCUS uses that can augment your physical exam and clinical decision making in real time.

A collaboration between ACP, the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM) and the Society for Ultrasound in Medical Education (SUSME), this webinar was led by Richard Hoppmann, MD, FACP, Dean Emeritus, University of South Carolina School of Medicine, Director, Ultrasound Institute, Dorothea H. Krebs Endowed Chair of Ultrasound Education.
The American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide CME activities for physicians.
The AIUM designates this enduring material for a maximum of 1 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s). Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
Expert faculty provides a comprehensive and in-depth look at how and where medical Ultrasound can effectively be used in point-of-care and general medicine settings. CME is offered. ACP members receive discounts on registration.
Oregon Health & Science University
This course is designed to cover point-of-care ultrasound for generalists. Live demonstrations, simulations, and didactic lectures will be used to provide a comprehensive and in-depth look at how and where medical ultrasound can effectively be used in point-of-care and general medicine settings. The faculty has created an event that focuses on learning through the observation-practice-feedback model.
We will ensure that you come away from the course with a well-founded grounding in the basic techniques, including focused cardiac, lung, abdomen, DVT, musculoskeletal/soft tissue, and procedural ultrasound, and that these techniques lay the foundation for a safe and effective ultrasound practice.
Sign up for quarterly webinars that focus on the use of Ultrasound in primary and critical care. These webinars are free to ACP members, and they offer CME.
There are no live webinars scheduled currently.
