The Emergency Ultrasound Section of the American Academy of Emergency Medicine (EUS-AAEM) was founded to foster the professional development of its members and to educate them regarding point of care ultrasound. Through opportunities for publications in POCUS Report and gaining lecturing experience through the Speakers Bureau, members are invited to share their knowledge and passion for point of care ultrasound with our community and beyond. Educational opportunities ranging from Scientific Assembly didact and hands-on experiences, to the Unmute Your Probe webinar series, to live Regional Hands-On Ultrasound Course offerings support our mission to promote high-quality ultrasound education to Emergency Medicine physicians regardless of practice setting or prior ultrasound training. By fostering relationships with AAEM/RSA and fostering competitions geared toward medical students, we promote the development of future ultrasound leaders in our specialty. We hope you join us as we continue to better patient care through point of care ultrasound!
Regional Hands-On Ultrasound Course
This half or full-day course has been designed to be the ultimate hands-on custom training based on topics you select and offers a comprehensive, hands-on experience to learn the fundamentals of point-of-care ultrasound. After didactic lectures with state-of-the-art audiovisual presentations led by veteran faculty, participants will have ample time for hands-on scanning in small groups of five participants (maximum) to one instructor ratio.

Residents and Fellows
The Emergency Ultrasound Section is looking for interested residents, fellows and faculty to speak with medical school Emergency Medicine Interest Groups and Ultrasound Interest Groups about the use of point of care ultrasound in the Emergency Department.
The section will provide a list of suggested topics to the Interest Groups, as well as providing you with several slide sets to use if you choose as a basis for lectures. This is a great opportunity for anyone interested in sparking interest in the next generation of Emergency Physicians in the use of point of care ultrasound in the Emergency Department!
