Point-of-Care Ultrasound (POCUS) Musculoskeletal (MSK) Soft Tissue Certificate

This program is an online certification program designed to provide independent validation of a clinical provider’s proficiency in Musculoskeletal (MSK) Soft Tissue 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 MSK soft tissue. The clinical case-based assessments are designed to simulate a clinical encounter. Question types range from multiple choice to hotspots. For hotspots, you will be asked to locate the requested feature within the interactive image provided.

Peer Evaluations

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 Musculoskeletal (MSK) Soft Tissue Content Outline.
