J Emerg Med. 1998 Jul-Aug;16(4):655-7. doi: 10.1016/s0736-4679(98)00064-x.


Emergency medicine (EM) residency program directors were surveyed to determine the presence and structure of curricula for teaching ultrasound to EM residents. For those EM programs without an ultrasound curriculum (USC), information was requested on plans to implement one within the next 12 months. Ninety of 116 (78%) EM programs replied to the survey. One-half of EM residencies surveyed have USCs, and another 30% plan to implement one in the near future.
