POCUS Workshop | 1:00pm - 5:00pm
Join James Wilcox, MD, a Point of Care Ultrasound Educator at Indiana University School of Medicine, and his colleagues for a Point of Care Ultrasound (POCUS) workshop where family physicians from across the state can spend a few hours learning how to do common POCUS exams that will benefit them in their offices. Dr. Wilcox is an Assistant Professor of Clinical Family Medicine at IUSM in Indianapolis. Additional faculty for this workshop are Daniela Lobo, MD, Assistant Professor of Clinical Family Medicine, and Rob Ferre, MD, Associate Professor of Clinical Emergency Medicine, both at IU School of Medicine in Indianapolis. 

The workshop will include lecture time and hands-on practice. A 15-20 minute discussion of the topic will be followed by about 30-45 minutes for learners to practice that skill with the facilitators. For example, the faculty will present an introduction for Abdominal Aorta Aneurysm Screening, including indications for the exam, how to perform the exam, common pathologies, and how to bill for the exam. The rest of the time will cover how to practice the exam. 

The following popular and high-yield exams will be covered:
1. DVT exam
2. Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm
3. eFAST - trauma (also intro to cardiac and renal)
4. Gallbladder
