Abstract

Peer Teaching in Ultrasound Education - A Narrative Review Abstract. Learning about ultrasound is becoming an increasingly important component of the undergraduate medical curriculum. However, teaching about this is very time-consuming, which is why many universities use peer teaching in ultrasound training. Peer teaching has various advantages that go beyond reducing specialists' teaching time: students may learn more from their peers because their cognitive schemata are more congruent and they are more likely to be open about their learning deficits. In addition, the process of teaching leads to increased learning and motivation in the peer teachers themselves. Most studies that compare peer teaching with teaching from medically qualified tutors show comparable learning effects, with different advantages for the two settings.
