Point of care ultrasonography (POCUS) has had its applications expand rapidly over recent years and across several medical specialties. Enough so that is has become an essential skill in most residency training programs across Canada. Despite this, there is little to no structured POCUS training at the medical undergraduate level. The goal of this commentary is to briefly introduce the value of POCUS in medical education; the feasibility of its integration; current barriers to its introduction; and the potential for students to be a possible solution until faculty can introduce a formal undergraduate POCUS curriculum.
