Dr. Rachel Liu, Assistant Professor in the Department of Emergency Medicine, was just named Director of Point of Care Ultrasound for Undergraduate Medical Education at the Yale School of Medicine. In this role she working will be a member of the clinical skills team responsible for the planning and implementation of curricular activities related to the use and application of point of care ultrasound across all four years of the medical student curriculum.
Dr. Liu is nationally recognized for her innovative methods of teaching point of care ultrasound. In 2013 Dr. Liu introduced a popular and highly rated pilot program into the elective curriculum focused on point of care ultrasound for pre-clerkship medical students that was integrated with teaching in the clinical skills program and human anatomy course. This successful pilot is now an elective course in the pre-clerkship period and has been a model for integrating content threads into the YSM curriculum.
Among her many contributions to medical education, Dr. Liu has co-directed two national courses hosted by Yale facultythe New England Emergency and Critical Care Ultrasound Course and the Yale Caribbean Island Point-of-Care Ultrasound Course. She has demonstrated national leadership as the Education Officer of the Academy of Emergency Ultrasound for the Society of Academic Emergency Physicians (SAEM), co-chaired the Undergraduate Medical Education committee for SAEM, has been a section leader of the Graduate Medical Education committee for the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP)-Ultrasound Section and is on the mentor task force of the medical education section for the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM). At Yale, in addition to her leadership in the Point of Care Ultrasound elective, she is a tutor in the clinical skills program, received the YSM Charles W. Bohmfalk Teaching Prize and was a recipient of a Yale Rosenkranz Award for Pedagogical Innovation in 2015.
Congratulations, Dr. Liu!
