Dr. Oron Frenkel completed his MS and MD simultaneously at the University of California Joint Medical Program in Berkeley and San Francisco. He then completed his residency in Emergency Medicine followed by a fellowship in Point-of-Care Ultrasound at Alameda County Medical Center in Oakland, California. He moved to British Columbia with the goal of increasing use of point-of-care ultrasound across the province, especially among rural practitioners. Based out of St. Paul’s Hospital and the UBC Department of Emergency Medicine, Dr. Frenkel is interested in evaluating best teaching methods for disseminating this technology, how to measure competency in its practice, its effects on outcomes for individual patients, and improvements in systemic resource allocation and management.
