Point-of-care ultrasonography has been shown to have pervasive clinical and educational utility in medicine. The need to provide medical students with training in point-of-care ultrasonography has been recognized by an increasing number of osteopathic and allopathic medical schools. A 4-year integrated ultrasonography curriculum was implemented at Rocky Vista University College of Osteopathic Medicine in 2015.
