The use of point-of-care ultrasound by emergency physicians is rapidly becoming standard of care. With the incorporation of ultrasound training into emergency medicine residency core curriculum and inclusion of emergency ultrasound into emergency medicine milestones, it has become a mandatory skill for graduating emergency medicine residents. In addition, there is growing interest to integrate ultrasound into medical school curriculum and in many institutions emergency physicians are leading the way in providing emergency ultrasound education to students throughout 4 years of medical school.
