Abdominal ultrasound examinations are performed by many gastroenterologists in clinical practice, but abdominal ultrasound education has not been included in internal medicine resident or gastroenterology fellowship training courses. Abdominal ultrasound education was established as an essential part of the resident training program in 2017, and since then interest in ultrasound has increased. An educational accreditation system for trainers of ultrasonography in the internal medicine field was developed in 2018, but accredited ultrasound trainers and equipment and space for ultrasound education are lacking. This article describes how to revitalize ultrasound education program for resident and fellowship training.
