This curriculum fulfills requirements for the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM) to perform MSK US and the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography’s (ARDMS) MSK sonography certification exam. This includes monthly didactic sessions covering basic principles, ultrasound guided procedures and different regions of the body (Shoulder, Hip/Thigh, Knee, Elbow, Wrist/Hand, Ankle/Foot/Lower Leg); free scanning opportunities; and mentored clinical experience with in-office scanning with faculty.
