  • We describe the curriculum of a 1-week ultrasound course for second-year medical students integrating didactics, bedside scanning, high-fidelity simulators, and a “Sonolympics” and evaluate its effectiveness. All students’ subjective confidence in using and interpreting ultrasound significantly increased, and students obtained and correctly interpreted ultrasound images in 86% of simulated cases.
