The Massachusetts General Hospital Emergency Department Division of Emergency Ultrasound was founded in 2003. The program initially pioneered the development and initiation of a mandatory training rotation for residents in the Harvard Affiliated Emergency Medicine Residency program and introduced the concept of point-of-care ultrasound diagnostics to the care and treatment of patients in the emergency department at MGH. The program has grown to now include a one year emergency ultrasound fellowship program for graduates of emergency medicine residency programs, a visiting fellows program for international physicians interested in learning point of care ultrasound, a robust research program in new applications for point of care ultrasound and outcome research studies looking at the impact of point of care ultrasound on patient care, and a medical student elective for fourth year students to learn point of care ultrasound. In addition, the division offers several continuing medical education courses a year for physicians in many specialties in point of care ultrasound image acquisition and interpretation. Finally, the division is represented in numerous national and international organizations promoting the integration of point of care ultrasound into the management of the critically ill patient. Division faculty participate actively in bringing ultrasound technology to resource poor settings to provide imaging diagnostics where there was none previously – both domestically and internationally – by teaching and providing quality assurance image review.
To foster learning in the entire medical community and to convince everyone that point of care ultrasound is helpful and really does impact that lives of our patients
