This was a great experience!

It was an absolute great experience…I am so happy that we chose GUSI to be our training platform. I would choose them again in a heartbeat.

  • Dr. Tricia Hall,
    Program Director, Eastern Connecticut Health Network Family Medicine Residency

Amazing addition to our residency’s POCUS program

The GUSI essentials online platform is fantastic for high yield asynchronous learning and letting residents learn at their own pace.

  • Dr. Anna McDonald
    Swedish First Hill Family Medicine Residency
    POCUS Champion, Clinical Faculty and Global Health Lead

The GUSI essentials online platform is fantastic for high yield asynchronous learning and letting residents learn at their own pace. I recently gave didactics on bleeding and clotting disorders – and spent an hour of that time dedicated to practicing DVT scanning. All residents were asked to complete the DVT module prior to didactics, so we could use our time in person for hands-on transducer time. The very next week I was attending on service and we had a patient come in with unilateral leg swelling; the resident team was able to quickly and confidently diagnose cellulitis based on the clinical picture and cobblestoning seen on US – but they also felt confident to scan for DVT, practicing their skills acquired the week prior. As an educator, you live for these “lightbulb moments” when students can put theory into practice, and feel confident doing so.  Overall, the GUSI Essentials course has been an amazing addition to our residency’s POCUS program and has freed up my time to spend teaching residents at the bedside.
