Point-of-care Ultrasound

Description of Research Expertise

Cameron focuses on developing educational techniques for integrating point of care ultrasonography into the clinical practice of internal medicine and critical care specialists. This interest developed as a result of his work in medicine in the resource limited setting.

In order to better inform this work, he has developed a skill set in cost-effectiveness analysis, with a focus on critical care interventions. He also has a role advising medical device groups through his work with Penn HealthTech.
