I am a Professor and the Vice Chairman of the Department of Emergency Medicine and Assistant Dean of Student Affairs at the University of California Irvine School of Medicine where I have worked for the past 16 years. My responsibilities include directing the ultrasound fellowship, and providing academic advising to faculty in emergency medicine. Being employed by the University of California in the clinical scholar series means I carry forward the University’s mission of Discover, Teach, and Heal in my clinical work, my research, and my teaching. This mission has translated into 70 peer-reviewed publications, three textbooks (two sole author), $1.6 million dollars in grant funding, and over 400 national and 15 international invited lectures on the topic of Ultrasound used at the Point-of-Care. In March 2016 I was honored to receive the Peter Arger award from the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine for excellent in medical student ultrasound education. I have a podcast on iTunes that has over 50,000 downloads and last May gave a TEDx talk on “The Point-of-Care Ultrasound Revolution”

POCUS is a Problem - CON

I will counterattack the opinion that POCUS is a problem by citing literature and clinical cases
POCUS is a problem? Really? For who? Maybe a radiologist holding down their turf in a small hospital that has been shielded from the world wide web. Will paint a broad picture of the wide multi-specialty impact POCUS has made in clinical care citing key references and case examples.
