Paving the Way for POCUS



Becca Davis, MD, is an Internal Medicine physician at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital and an assistant professor at Sidney Kimmel Medical College. She completed her medical school training and internal medicine residency at the University of Pennsylvania where she went on to be chief resident before making the move to Jefferson. She is currently an assistant program director for the Internal Medicine/Primary Care Residency and associate program director for the Internal Medicine POCUS Fellowship, which just started this year at Jefferson. While she was lucky enough to get some exposure to ultrasound in residency, she really developed her POCUS skill set two years ago when she became an attending. She works closely with the EM and critical care teams to help spread her passion for POCUS across the department and participates in the institutional Point of Care Ultrasound Committee. Primarily, Becca is working to create a formalized POCUS curriculum and electives for the residency and develop a clinical pathway for hospitalists to gain POCUS skills in addition to her fellowship and clinical responsibilities.
