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.
