Emergency Ultrasound Fellowship

Since 2012, NYU Langone’s Ronald O. Perelman Department of Emergency Medicine has offered an Emergency Ultrasound Fellowship to prepare fellows for academic or community leadership positions in emergency ultrasound education, research, and administration.

Our fellows develop educational, administrative, and research skills through formal didactics; hands-on scanning shifts; simulation sessions; journal review; image review; lecture, workshop, and curriculum development; and participation in research projects led by faculty in the Division of Emergency Ultrasound.

Clinical Training and Responsibilities

Fellows have the opportunity to train at diverse clinical sites including NYU Langone’s Ronald O. Perelman Center for Emergency Services and NYU Langone Hospital—Brooklyn.

Our resources include a legion of wirelessly networked ultrasound machines and a state-of-the-art, 25,000-square-foot simulation facility at the New York Simulation Center for the Health Sciences.

Fellows have full access to all ultrasound simulation resources, including extended focused assessment with sonography for trauma (EFAST) and advanced echocardiography (both transthoracic and transesophageal) simulation labs. There are also opportunities to complete rotations outside of the emergency department with point-of-care ultrasound experts in other specialties, such as general anesthesia and sports medicine.

Fellows are expected to work an average of 20 clinical hours per week in the emergency departments between the various clinical sites. These shifts provide fellows with the opportunity to maintain their clinical proficiency, hone their bedside teaching, and utilize their ultrasound skills in genuine clinical environments.

Educational and Teaching Opportunities

Fellows have ample opportunities to teach and train medical students, residents, and faculty.

We host a weekly ultrasound conference, which includes quality assurance, journal club, ultrasound didactic lectures, and hands-on scanning sessions. As the year progresses, fellows are expected to take a leadership role in these conferences, providing educational content, didactics, and workshops for rotating residents and medical students. The emergency medicine residency utilizes innovative multi-modal learning experiences during weekly resident conference that frequently features ultrasound, and fellows are given the opportunity to contribute to structured resident education with lectures and ultrasound workshops. They are also encouraged to refine their bedside ultrasound teaching skills by supervising scanning shifts with residents on their ultrasound rotation.

We offer a robust, integrated ultrasound curriculum at the medical school level, and fellows are encouraged to participate in all undergraduate medical education curricular innovations and teaching opportunities related to emergency ultrasound.

Fellows who are particularly interested in medical education and scholarship may opt to pursue a two-year pathway and apply for the Masters of Health Professions Education (MHPE) joint degree from Maastricht University and NYU School of Medicine.

Research Opportunities

With the support and mentorship of the emergency ultrasound and research divisions, fellows are expected to complete a research project during the course of their training, including idea conception, protocol development and authorship, institutional review board approval, data collection, conference presentations, and manuscript submission. Fellows are also expected to keep abreast of current ultrasound research by means of journal club and national and international conference participation.

Administrative Responsibilities

Fellows are responsible for taking part in administrative duties within the Division of Emergency Ultrasound, including attending monthly business meetings, assisting with machine and network maintenance, and participating in quality assurance. Fellows will have the opportunity to participate in any political, legal, or financial discourse or policy creation related to emergency ultrasound.

Length of Training

Appointments are for one or two years, from July 1 through June 30. Fellows are expected to complete 20 clinical hours per week (16 hours per week if enrolled in the MHPE program) in addition to their fellowship responsibilities.

We accept one to three fellows per year and offer a competitive salary and benefits package. Fellows have academic appointments at NYU School of Medicine for the duration of their training.

Application Process

Interested applicants may apply through the Society of Clinical Ultrasound Fellowships. Candidates must participate in the match process and are chosen through the National Resident Matching Program®.
