The on-demand SonoSim Content Library provides an easy-to-implement, scalable solution that seamlessly integrates ultrasound education into any four-year medical school curriculum. The Anatomy & Physiology Modules are ideal for first- and second-year medical students who need to learn sonographic anatomy in parallel with traditional gross anatomy and physiology courses. The Core Clinical Modules cover pathologies in greater depth and are ideal for third- and fourth-year medical students to study and review in parallel with clinical rotations.

Comprehensive Medical School Curriculum

Learning Ultrasound Basics

The SonoSim medical education curriculum currently offers over 200 hours of cloud-based content for medical students to access throughout their undergraduate medical careers.

The standardized curriculum is organized into 33 Anatomy & Physiology Modules and 16 Core Clinical Modules, including over 350 SonoSimulator® hands-on training cases across a variety of essential medical topics.

Each SonoSim® Module consists of didactic lessons, knowledge assessment, and SonoSimulator® hands-on training cases.
