About our accreditation program

The Clinical Ultrasound Accreditation Program (CUAP) is an ACEP-governed, accreditation organization with the purpose of establishing a system of review to promote the goals of quality, patient safety, communication, responsibility, and clarity regarding the use of clinical, also known as point-of-care, ultrasound. As the use of ultrasound has become mainstream in clinical medicine, a need has emerged to encourage and support current standards for clinical ultrasound programs as detailed in the position statements and guidelines established by respective medical societies and associations.
