Ultrasound Fellowship Education

Our fellowship is ideal for motivated individuals who wish to distinguish themselves as leaders in emergency ultrasound.

Our fellow will function as the Ultrasound Service Chief in a smaller community hospital outside of Ann Arbor.

With guidance from the fellowship director and ultrasound faculty, our fellow will develop real time administrative experience in running the community hospital ultrasound program including:
o physician credentialing
o quality assurance
o ultrasound directed protocols
o equipment and software maintenance and purchasing
o serving as the bedside ultrasound liaison for the entire community hospital system

Instead of merely learning the above skills, our fellow will be performing them and creating a robust, practical and financially viable model for the community hospital emergency department that can be mimicked in other academic or community settings.

Our fellow will graduate with the tools and skill set to practically implement bedside ultrasound in a variety of clinical, analytical and business applications including but not limited to
o small and large community emergency departments
o out-patient clinics
o virtual quality assurance programs
o large academic centers
o entrepreneurial ultrasound applications

Our fellow will be involved in leadership and advocacy of bedside ultrasound on both a state level through Detroit Area Ultrasound Society, MCEP (Michigan College of Emergency Physicans) and nationally through ACEP (American College of Emergency Physicians)

Our fellowship will provide comprehensive ultrasound education with opportunities including supervision of the ultrasound education for medical students as well as residents in the St. Joseph Mercy Hospital/University of Michigan Emergency Medicine Residency.

o Dedicated scanning shifts with junior residents
o Facilitating resident educational lectures and QA
o Facilitating off-service resident ultrasound elective curriculum and hands on scanning in the emergency department

Our fellow will be involved in various research endeavors through our robust research support at St. Joseph Mercy Hospital and ongoing ultrasound research collaborations with different departments and outside institutions.
