The uOttawa PoCUS Infographic Project is a student-led initiative developed by two University of Ottawa medical students, Caleb Sypkes and Celina DeBiasio, under the expertise of Dr. Michael Woo

While PoCUS is a critical skill to develop, it can be difficult for learners to efficiently apply their skills in a fast-paced clinical setting. These bilingual PoCUS infographics were created as an accessible and easy-to-use reference tool which quickly highlights the key elements of a variety of scans, including important steps and findings.  

A team of medical students worked with Emergency Medicine staff and resident physicians to ensure each infographic was effectively designed and medically accurate. Three infographics have been completed to date, with plans to expand the collection in the future.
