Dr. Sulaiman teaching
Morning report three to four mornings a week and vary from case presentations and M&M, to podcasts and educational videos to image challenges to medical Jeopardy. Afternoon conferences on Thursdays include lectures given by core faculty and outside speakers, and include ABIM-specific curriculum as well as lectures on the business side of medicine, journal clubs and different wellness activities. Grand rounds are on Tuesday afternoons.
 

POCUS

Point of Care Ultrasound (POCUS) is immensely helpful in addressing specific clinical questions using ultrasound at bedside. It is quick, safe and cost effective. POCUS is considered as the future stethoscope and is being widely used as an extension of physical examination. Several Internal Medicine organizations (ACP, SHM, AAIM, SGIM, CIMUS) have supported the use of ultrasound at bedside. We are pleased to introduce the “POCUS elective” to our residents and students and the primary goal of this rotation will be to provide didactic and hands-on training experience that will enable the trainees to attain proficiency in routine ultrasound applications in Internal Medicine and common bedside procedures.
