Thanks to Matt Fields, Andrew Liteplo, Srikar Adhikari, and Jason Nomura for helping us wrap up the SAEM 2014 meeting. We reviewed all things ultrasound related from this years meeting in Dallas. During this month's SonoRoundtable meeting, we covered the ultrasound pre course, the academy meeting, Matt's plans and direction for 2014-15, cutting edge research abstracts, SonoGames 2014, and the ultrasound didactics.
Thanks to Resa Lewiss and the Mt. Sinai St. Lukes-Roosevelt Ultrasound Division for inviting me (Steve Leech) as their guest educator for May 2014. We did a simulcast of the session for SonoRoundtable, and our topic this month was tools for ultrasound educators.
Due to the FOAMed movement, there are tons of great resources available and we reviewed several great websites, iOS apps, competency assessment tools, and ultrasound simulators. We also discussed our proposed ultrasound fellowship milestones that were presented at this year's CORD meeting in New Orleans. No need to reinvent the wheel in your ultrasound program, check out these great resources!
Paul Sierzenski lead a fantastic discussion which included topics related to government, reimbursement, and patient safety and quality.
We had a great panel discussion about the current state and future directions of emergency ultrasound. Our panel included Vicki Noble, Mike Mallin, Srikar Adhikari, Jerry Chiricolo, Raj Geria, and Steve Leech. Thanks to our panel and participants for another great meeting!
