Musculoskeletal Ultrasound

A longitudinal curriculum will provide residents a consistent improvement in learning and practicing MSKUS throughout their residency training.  Residents will evaluate and treat musculoskeletal related injuries under supervision of a sports medicine trained physician. MSKUS training will be incorporated into twice monthly sports medicine lectures. At the end of this longitudinal rotation, all residents will be able to:

  • Demonstrate knowledge of the common musculoskeletal injuries and somatic dysfunction in the primary care setting

  • Initiate MSKUS treatment plans using guided injections when appropriate

  • Apply MSKUS protocols and identify common musculoskeletal injuries of the shoulder, elbow, wrist/hand, hip, knee, and ankle/foot using Ultrasound

Lecture Topics:

  • Ultrasound Physiology and Knobology (2 Part Series)

  • Knee Ultrasound and Pathology

  • Knee Injections under Ultrasound Guidance

  • Shoulder Ultrasound and Pathology

  • Shoulder Injections under Ultrasound Guidance

  • Ultrasound for the hand, wrist, and elbow

  • Ultrasound of the leg, ankle, and foot

  • Ultrasound Guided Injection Protocols

  • Rotator Cuff Pathology
