A Musculoskeletal Ultrasound Course for Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Residents

imageMusculoskeletal ultrasound is an imaging modality that can be used to evaluate nerve, tendon, muscle, ligament, and joint disorders and to guide therapeutic procedures. A growing proportion of physiatrists are interested in musculoskeletal ultrasound as demonstrated by the increasing number of musculoskeletal ultrasound articles published in physical medicine and rehabilitation journals and quantity of musculoskeletal ultrasound courses and workshops at physical medicine and rehabilitation conferences. The Mayo Clinic (Rochester, MN) Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation residency program developed a musculoskeletal ultrasound course for their physical medicine and rehabilitation residents, which was implemented in 2008. A detailed description of the course is provided in this article. In addition, results from a premusculoskeletal ultrasound course and postmusculoskeletal ultrasound course practical and written test are presented, and the results of a postmusculoskeletal ultrasound course resident survey are discussed. This information can be used by other physical medicine and rehabilitation residency programs to assist in the creation of their own musculoskeletal ultrasound course.
