POCUS Review Book

Alan Chiem, MD (Ultrasound Director at UCLA Olive View), and Vi Dinh, MD (Ultrasound Director at Loma Linda University Health), partnered with Oxford University Press to create the first case-based question and answer POCUS board review book: The Emergency Medicine and Clinical Ultrasound Board Review Book.

This book was over two years in the making and we were able to enlist the top Point of Care Ultrasound Experts in the World to help us out! With over 70 contributing authors from over 20 renowned POCUS institutions (e.g., UC Irvine, Stanford, Yale, Ohio State), we believe this is the best Point of Care Ultrasound review book out there.
