Our Mission

The Point of Care Ultrasound (POCUS) Atlas is collaborative education platform where we create, share, and curate free ultrasound education material. Our goal is to improve the way POCUS is taught on a global scale. The POCUS Image Atlas is a collection of rare, exemplary, and perfectly captured ultrasound images intended to be used as educational material. The infographics of The Evidence Atlas showcase the data powering the POCUS movement.

All of our content is free, open access, and peer-reviewed available to be shared and used for global ultrasound education. Don't hesitate to reach out.

Emergency Medicine Chief Resident of Education at Kings County/SUNY Downstate in Brooklyn, NY. I believe in free open access medical education, the POCUS revolution, and the application of POCUS internationally and in austere settings.

Incoming Resident in Emergency Medicine at the University of New Mexico and graduate from SUNY Downstate Medical School in Brooklyn, NY. I have come to respect the enormous utility of US in the ED and hope to learn a great deal while working on this project over the upcoming years.
