AAMC Reporter - "Making Waves: Ultrasound Use Increases in Medical Education" - Dr. Jagat Narula
The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai has given first-year students access to pocket-sized ultrasound devices to practice imaging on each other, so they can identify and assess the health of organs, blood vessels, bones, muscles, and tendons.
Jagat Narula, MD, director of cardiovascular imaging at Mount Sinai, is a staunch supporter of expanding programs such as this one. "Today's students will latch on to technology better than past generations. I want to introduce ultrasound to students on the first day and incorporated it throughout their education, so that it will eventually become second nature to them and they will be able to use imaging in their careers."
