ULTRASOUND PROGRAM

The RVU Clinical Ultrasound curriculum integrates the use of ultrasound into all levels of education for students. As Dr. Thomas N. Told once wrote, "RVU is not the first osteopathic medical school to incorporate ultrasound into the curriculum; however, we are one of the few that have developed curriculum extending through all four years of study. We know that this important tool will be essential to the physicians of the future. In our goal to produce the best physician possible, developing ultrasound skills seem to be an essential ingredient in that process." Read the rest of Dr. Told's article at the link below.

RESOURCES

Rocky Vista University College of Osteopathic Medicine has developed several specialized educational tracks and programs to further develop the education of interested students. These range from 3.5-year-long tracks to single-semester elective courses.

Student research/scholarly activity is a vital part of health provider education. Research enhances critical thinking skills and increases medical knowledge, as well as preparing students for graduate medical education. Therefore, all students are encouraged to participate in research activities while at RVU.

During their third and fourth years of medical school, students work on clinical externships, under the guidance of preceptors. RVU students have externships available to them through Colorado and the other Mountain West states.
