Who is SCUF?
The Society for Clinical Ultrasound Fellowships (SCUF) started as EUSFellowships in the spring of 2008 to support transparency and quality in Fellowships in
Emergency Medicine focusing on clinician performed ultrasound. As a non-profit organization we balance the needs of the fellowship community including,
fellowship programs, fellows and applicants. Our mission is to grow the Clinician Performed Ultrasound community, support collaboration and foster
advanced training through one and two year fellowships.
History of Clinician Performed Ultrasound Fellowships
Emergency Ultrasound Fellowships, or Clinician performed ultrasound fellowships as they are now known started in the late 1990s in Chicago at
Christ Hospital. Those first fellows are now leaders in this field. We have grown from a single fellowship to over 90 fellowships across North
America. Each year there are around 70 applicants who apply for fellowship positions through EUSFellowships.com.
The National Ultrasound Fellowship Conference
On April 7th and 8th of 2016 we held the inaugural conference focusing on Clinician Performed Ultrasound Fellowships. This conference
brought together national leaders on clinician performed ultrasound to discuss topics related to training and evaluating ultrasound fellows as
well as initiating a national discussion on larger topics related to clinician performed ultrasound. We are building on the success of this conference this year. Come explore opportunities such as international
projects or new research initiatives, and meet the leaders of the field and fellows from around the country.
