A significantly greater number of rheumatology fellowships in the United States teach musculoskeletal ultrasound, according to recent findings.Researchers acquired a list of 113 rheumatology fellowship directors from FREIDA online and sent surveys pertaining to musculoskeletal ultrasound (MSUS). The first survey (S1) was a 12-item needs assessment survey to evaluate the needs of rheumatology fellowships for the implementation of MSUS. This survey included questions about program size, faculty training, acquisition of equipment, barriers to incorporating a program and formal curricular inclusion. Researchers defined a formal curriculum as a written curriculum, either separate from or assimilated into the existing standardized curriculum established by the ACR and the American Board of Internal Medicine.
