Sim Sono Sleuthing Case Challenge

Sponsored by the Emergency Ultrasound Section, Simulation Interest Group, and AAEM/RSA

Take on the Challenge
Get ready to put your ultrasound skills and teamwork to the test! We are challenging YOU to the ultimate, free POCUS competition at AAEM24.

Solve the Case
Take the journey through five simulated patient scenarios with live patient models. Each scenario will be based on a chief complaint, and you will use ultrasound to solve the case with your team. Teamwork is vital for this competition!

Teams are scored based on how many action steps they complete during each case. There are ~8 action steps per case (40 total.)

Win Bragging Rights!
The overall highest-scoring team after all five scenarios is the winner! Winners will be announced during the Medical Student Track at AAEM24 on Sunday, April 28, 2024 and receive a certificate as well as a featured post on AAEM/RSA’s social media accounts acknowledging your top-tier ultrasound skills.
