Non-fellowship trained US directors
I'm reaching out to the Emergency Ultrasound Section for advice and guidance regarding our group's search for an US director. For a variety of reasons, we are seeking to develop a director from within our group. Essentially, what I'm wondering is what resources to you recommend or what path to you recommend to take a physician who is experienced in point of care US in the ED and increase technical proficiency, QA/QC, administrative aspects, and billing to essentially the level of a fellowship trained physician? Is RDMS necessary for this path? If so, how do you even begin the process of certification? Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time.
