Mitchell and Page participated in a Vituity workshop for POCUS guided regional nerve blocks.

No outside courses are required. Ultrasound fellows have the opportunity to attend them, however, to supplement their training.
Fellows, at their discretion, can develop these with any department, e.g. intensivists, to supplement their training.
Kaweah Health was the recipient of a 2019 Vituity Innovation Grant to support the use the Butterfly iQ hand held units in the emergency department.
The purpose of this grant was to develop a comprehensive, regional US program involving nearby Vituity sites, frequently staffed by Kaweah Health EM residency graduates.
