Ultrasound Fellowship Education

Ultrasound education is delivered in the Department of Emergency Medicine by faculty with years of ultrasound experience. Quality assurance video review sessions are held where all EM ultrasound examinations are reviewed by emergency ultrasound faculty in conjunction with the fellows in training. Fellows are also exposed to multiple additional courses and training opportunities throughout their fellowship. An emphasis will be placed on administrative and leadership aspects of running an ultrasound program.

Do you bill for ultrasounds?

In process

Do you require follow up imaging for patients who get ultrasounds?

We do not require follow-up imaging for exams performed by credentialed providers. Follow-up imaging is required for all studies performed by practitioners that are not yet credentialed.
