What is a local mentor?
Local Mentors are qualified attending physicians who agree to review a subset (10%) of your diagnostic POCUS exams for a given POCUS domain.
Mentors will support you virtually and are not required to be located at your hospital/institution.
The role of the mentor is merely to verify via a brief web-based form that the learner has demonstrated competence in image acquisition. The mentor is NOT required to comment at all on the learner’s image interpretation skills (these skills are refined in Part 3 and tested in Part 5 of the Certificate). However, each mentor is free to provide feedback on the learner’s image interpretation skills if the mentor so chooses.
Why do I need to find a local mentor?
Part 4 of the POCUS program requires a qualified local mentor to review a subset of your portfolio of diagnostic POCUS studies and verify that the exams reviewed are of interpretable quality.
