Ultrasound Fellowship Education

This is a one-year Pediatric Emergency Ultrasound Fellowship.

At CCMC our patients have a wide range of pathology and at times very high acuity. This offers the fellow trainees a target rich environment for learning the fundamentals of pediatric emergency ultrasound and improving their diagnostic accuracy with critically ill children.

We hope to produce highly trained physicians who will have gained a solid level of understanding in Pediatric Emergency Ultrasound, with goals that this new skill set will translate seamlessly into their clinical environment and make an immediate impact in their care of children.
