Why Should I Earn a POCUS Certificate and/or Certification?:
Point of Care Ultrasound (or POCUS) is very rapidly becoming the new standard of care in pre-hospital, emergency, critical care, trauma, military applications/prolonged field care, family medicine/urgent care, and other point of care settings. Many hospitals and facilities have established or are in the process of establishing credentialing requirements for providers of all levels to be able to perform POCUS exams in their facility. With sufficient training and experience, POCUS increases patient safety, satisfaction, and in many instances patient outcomes by empowering the provider with the ability to more readily diagnose and treat a patient at the bedside when time is a crucial factor in their treatment. Earning a POCUS Renal/Genitourinary Certificate will validate your expertise in performing renal/genitourinary ultrasound exams to employers, coworkers, and patients, and be considered a leader in the field of POCUS!
