PGY-2 Ultrasound Rotation 


Welcome to the PGY-2 Emergency Ultrasound Rotation! We are excited to have you joining us again. You will be rotating on ultrasound as part of the EMS block. Mondays will be exclusively dedicated to ultrasound during your rotation. Additional time scanning will be at your own discretion. The goal of the rotation will be to get you as close to accomplishing all the requirements for “Level 2” certification. These requirements are listed below.


While not exclusively part of the rotation, we encourage you to spend time teaching any interns, students, or off-service residents that are currently on their ultrasound rotation.  This is a great way for you to improve your own technical proficiency as you find ways to help others learn to scan.
