AMSSM SPORTS ULTRASOUND ONLINE DIDACTICS

 
These 35 modules were created by the American Medical Society for Sports Medicine's Sports Ultrasound Committee to cover the didactic instructional sessions outlined in the AMSSM Recommended Sports Ultrasound Curriculum for Sports Medicine Fellowships. There is no charge for these instructional sessions.

They cover all of the didactic instructional session topics recommended for sports medicine fellows by the AMSSM. Each video provides a concise overview of the relevant topic. The topics are divided into introductory lectures for diagnostic and interventional sports ultrasound; live video demonstrations of regional diagnostic ultrasound examinations of the shoulder, elbow, wrist-hand, hip, knee and elbow; the sonographic appearance of relevant pathology for each region; and interventional procedures for each joint. Following each presentation, you will be directed to a post-test covering the key concepts from the video. Each test will contain 5-7 multiple choice and/or true-false questions. The minimum passing grade for the test is 70%.
