R1:

We ask that you show proficiency in performing your own ultrasound studies, by having an attending review and sign off on 3 US studies that you did.

By October, we ask that you are credentialed in lower extremity DVTgallbladder, and testicular ultrasounds, and pelvic ultrasounds as you will be asked to do them on call by yourself.  We would also recommend practicing as many upper extremity DVT and renal studies as possible, as they occasionally come up on call.  Ask an US Attending to review your studies and sign off.

If you are not credentialed and you perform a study on-call by yourself, the images have to be reviewed by a credentialed resident (usually the resident at RH or the senior consult), who will review/cosign the preliminary report). All first years need to have an upperclassman add their names to all ultrasounds performed by a first year, whether or not they are credentialed.  

The images and preliminary reports are reviewed and finalized by the US Attending overnight or on the next business day.
