Point-of-Care Ultrasound (POCUS) Gastrointestinal Certificate
This program is an online certification program designed to provide independent validation of clinical providers proficiency in Gastrointestinal POCUS. The POCUS Clinical Certificate is comprised of two assessments: a Clinical Case-Based Assessment and a Peer Evaluation.
Clinical Case-Based Assessment
This clinical certificate was developed using a standard template that has been customized for the GI system. The clinical case-based assessments are designed to simulate a clinical encounter. Question types range from multiple choice to hotspots.
The peer evaluation is designed to assess your practical abilities in POCUS. Clinicians of your choosing will be sent an anonymous questionnaire to evaluate your POCUS abilities. Assessment results are based on the first two evaluations received.
For more details regarding assessment domains and peer evaluations, please refer to the POCUS Gastrointestinal Content Outline.
