Cohen Childrens Medical Center

Program Description

Type of Program

This is a one-year Pediatric Emergency Ultrasound Fellowship, open to individuals board-eligible in pediatric emergency medicine (ABP or ABEM) or general pediatrics (ABP).

The fellow will be appointed to the clinical staff as a part time attending in the Division of Emergency Medicine. All will work clinically in the urgent-care center and emergency department fast-track. Those board-eligible in PEM will also work in the general emergency department.

Year Fellowship Started:

2015

Ultrasound Program Status

The fellowship is sponsored by the Division of Pediatric Emergency Medicine at The Steven and Alexandra Cohen Children's Medical Center (CCMC).

In addition to our training program in emergency ultrasound, the division trains: 9 pediatric emergency medicine fellows, rotating residents (pediatrics, emergency medicine, family medicine, psychiatry, podiatry, and others), and medical students from the Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell. As such, the fellow will have ample time to hone their clinical teaching skills while working clinically.

Number of Ultrasound Faculty:

Our division supports 3 point-of-care faculty members, each of whom is actively involved in training the PoCUS fellow.

In addition, there are multiple faculty at affiliated general EDs within the Northwell system.

Further, we collaborate with numerous local pediatric PoCUS programs to sponsor joint academic events.

Ultrasound Fellowship Education

At CCMC our patients have a wide range of pathology with high acuity. This offers the fellow rich environment in which to learn the not only the fundamentals of pediatric emergency ultrasound, but also diagnostic accuracy in 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.
