Ultrasound Fellowship Education

Initially the curriculum will be designed to provide advancement of basic ultrasound skills learned throughout residency. This will be done through lectures and scan review with EUS faculty.

The art of teaching ultrasound is one of the most important skills taught during the fellowship. This will be done through involvement in giving lectures/didactics as well as participating in hands-on and bedside teaching.

Later in the fellowship, program development and management will be learned through didactics, scan review and involvement in managing the ultrasound program.
