Abstract

Ultrasound training is incorporated throughout the medical curriculum at TCOM beginning in Year 1 Physical Exam where they are introduced to the fundamental of Ultrasound as it pertains to each system being taught. In year 2 the training is included in the Simulation Lab curriculum. The purpose of this study is to look at the effectiveness of near peer teaching in the setting of ultrasound. We hypothesize that near peer teaching will be the preferred learning technique among students and student teaching assistants and will facilitate a better learning environment. Near peer teaching is where material is taught to students by their peers. This has been proven to be an effective teaching technique in other settings. Point of care ultrasound is becoming a necessary part of medical education, as its importance in clinical medicine grows. Near peer teaching can be one way to implement medical school ultrasound training.
