The State of Ultrasound Education in US Medical Schools: Results of a National Survey

Background: Ultrasound is an expanding tool in modern patient care that allows for physician-performed, rapid bedside evaluation and interventional management of patients with portable ultrasound equipment. Unlike traditional, comprehensive ultrasonography, where both a technologist and a radiologist attempt to answer a series of diagnostic questions, focused ultrasonography enables a single clinician to perform a bedside assessment to answer a select series of clinical questions and simultaneously interpret and use the findings.

E.M.P.A.T.H.Y.: A Tool to Enhance Nonverbal Communication Between Clinicians and Their Patients

Background: There is a gap in the medical education literature on teaching nonverbal detection and expression of empathy. Many articles do not address nonverbal interactions, instead focusing on “what to say” rather than “how to be.” This focus on verbal communication overlooks the essential role nonverbal signals play in the communication of emotions, which has significant effects on patient satisfaction, health outcomes, and malpractice claims

Cognitive Load Theory: Implications for medical education

Background: Cognitive Load Theory (CLT) builds upon established models of human memory that include the subsystems of sensory, working and long-term memory. Working memory (WM) can only process a limited number of information elements at any given time. This constraint creates a “bottleneck” for learning.
