Ultrasound

The Fellowship in Emergency Ultrasound, established in 2012, aims to prepare graduates to pursue academic or community leadership positions in emergency ultrasound, education and research. This 1- or 2-year postgraduate program focuses on developing educational, administrative and research skills through formal didactics, hands-on experiential scanning shifts, simulation sessions, journal review, image review and participation in division research projects. Our fellowship’s resources, including fully networked ultrasound machines, an experienced Research Division, a newly opened state-of-the-art 25,000 square-foot Simulation Center, and established locations for international EM ultrasound experiences, are just a few features which set us apart from other ultrasound programs.Our fellows have full access to all ultrasound simulation resources, including FAST and ECHO simulators as well as various tissue phantoms for educational and research purposes. Our fully staffed research team works closely with our fellows during all phases of their fellowship projects, from idea inception and IRB proposal to manuscript submission. The Ultrasound Division has five dedicated ultrasound faculty members participating in fellow education and scholarly activities. The Division places particular emphasis on undergraduate medical education (UME) and the fellow has the opportunity to participate in all UME ultrasound curricular innovations and teaching opportunities.

Interested candidates may have the opportunity to pursue an advanced degree in Masters of Health Professions Education (MHPE).
