Dr. Snead’s Statement on Ultrasound at UAMS  (Bio coming soon!)

Emergency Bedside Ultrasound allows clinicians to rapidly evaluate a patient, answer focused clinical questions, and assist procedural interventions to assist clinical decision making and improve patient safety and satisfaction.  The rapid growth of the area of practice has been due to recognition of the benefits of bedside ultrasound by a number of national and international organizations and is reflected by increasing training requirements in a number of medical specialties including emergency medicine, internal medicine, critical care, and surgery.

Our ultrasound curriculum will employ the best evidence available to deliver fundamental skills in resuscitative, bedside diagnostic, and procedural ultrasound through a combination of asynchronous didactic modules and knowledge assessments, interactive discussion sessions, live models and simulation, and one-on-one bedside teaching in the Emergency Department.

All studies will be recorded digitally and reviewed for quality assurance and continuous quality improvement to provide oversight to ensure patient safety and feedback to clinicians who will continue to hone their skills throughout training and practice.

Our goal is to produce clinician leaders in evidence based clinical decision-making using bedside ultrasound to improve the care of patients wherever you may practice.
