2016 SCUF Conference
Denver Health Pediatric US Fellowship



Welcome to the Denver Health Pediatric Emergency Ultrasound Fellowship website!

The Pediatric Ultrasound Fellowship at Denver Health is a one-year curriculum designed to train leaders in pediatric emergency ultrasound. The first year of the Pediatric Emergency Ultrasound Fellowship will begin in July of 2015. The Pediatric Emergency Ultrasound Fellowship is built on the foundation of the Emergency Ultrasound Fellowship at Denver Health with over 20 years of clinical excellence in bedside ultrasound use, research and educational publications related to emergency ultrasound, and a faculty that is dedicated to the principle that ultrasound is integral to every emergency physician’s clinical practice. The Pediatric Emergency Ultrasound Fellowship will expand on this experience to include pediatric-specific ultrasound techniques. Scanning will take place in both the general emergency department and the pediatric emergency department.

In the following pages you will find aspects of the Denver Health program that are unique, including:

-a long tradition of graduating fellows from the Emergency Ultrasound Fellowship who direct emergency ultrasound programs or fellowships and who have exceptional academic careers;

-a program that offers a rich clinical and ultrasound fellowship experience for PGY-4 Canadian Emergency Medicine residents. Five Canadian residents have matriculated from the Denver Health program;

-unbridled clinical sonography experience at a busy emergency department in a Level 1 trauma center (55,000/year) with a same-site pediatric emergency department that carries a Level 2 pediatric trauma designation;

-exposure to a variety of training programs including Emergency Medicine, Pediatrics, Family Medicine, Surgery, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Otolaryngology, Dentistry, and OB/Gynecology

-an expansive ultrasound curriculum that includes integration into the MS1, MS2, and MS3 curriculum for 180 medical students, a MS4 ultrasound rotation that is fully booked with a waiting list, an Emergency Medicine PGY-1 ultrasound rotation, a quarterly ultrasound journal club, a PGY-4 advanced ultrasound elective, and ongoing Emergency Medicine and newly developed Pediatric Emergency faculty ultrasound education;

-and a highly collaborative environment with hospital departments including Gynecology, Radiology, and Pediatrics and other local fellowship programs such as Wilderness Medicine, EMS, and Global Health.
