May 24, 2023 // Southern Medical Association

Internal Medicine faculty at Saint Peter’s University Hospital in New Brunswick, New Jersey, recently received hands-on point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) training, provided by SMA. Led by Mike Wagner, MD, FACP, FAIUM, Associate Professor at the University of South Carolina School of Medicine-Greenville and Director of Internal Medicine Ultrasound for Prisma Health-Upstate, the two-day training/CME event took place May 19-20 and included a series of live demonstrations, case-based simulations, and didactic lectures. 

The program, the aim of which is to offer onsite POCUS training at the clinicians’ facilities, provided a customized and comprehensive look at how and where medical ultrasound can effectively be used in point-of-care and general medicine settings. Attendees learned techniques that provide a foundation for a safe and effective ultrasound practice, including focused cardiac, pulmonary, abdominal and vascular applications.

“We were very pleased to have had this opportunity,” said Randy Glick, SMA Executive Director. “Education has been our mission for more than 100 years and we appreciate that SMA could be a part of this event.”
