Internal medicine (IM) residents have become more and more interested in acquiring POCUS skills in recent years. Ultrasound guidance for commonly done procedures by internists is essentially standard of care now in the USA, but this is still not the case for diagnostic POCUS.
I feel there may still be a bit of skepticism and reluctance in implementing POCUS education for IM. With this in mind, is eventual integration of diagnostic POCUS into the IM curriculum inevitable? Do we have enough evidence to make at integral part of IM training programs? If so, how should medical educators (program directors, academic hospitalists etc.) start preparing for this?
