Abstract

The following musculoskeletal ultrasound (MSK US) curriculum was developed by the American Medical Society for Sports Medicine (AMSSM) to provide a pathway by which a sports medicine fellow can obtain adequate MSK US training during their fellowship to meet the requirements of competency outlined by the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM) Training Guidelines for the Performance of MSK US Examination. Many fellowship programmes may not be able to follow all of the recommendations outlined by this document owing to their available resources. However, this curriculum can be used as a suggested/potential guideline for MSK US training within a sports medicine fellowship, and may assist programmes in developing or modifying their own internal training methods.
