Ultrasound Fellowship Education

The goal of the fellowship is to train leaders in Point-of Care Ultrasound with advanced knowledge and experience in ultrasound education, research and administration. Program graduates will be provided with the tools and expertise necessary to assume Pediatric Point-of Care Ultrasound leadership positions. This main goal is to be achieved through training in 3 areas:

Didactic Education: Provide advanced education in emergency ultrasound through hands-on and interactive, didactic educational opportunities. Rady Children’s Hospital has an annual census of approximately 80,000. This volume provides a large diversity of pathology for a unique educational experience. The fellow will also rotate through the university of California- San Diego medical centers where they will receive training in adult-specific applications.

Research: Provide opportunities for further research in new and established ultrasound applications.

Administration: Gain special expertise to teach and oversee administrative aspects of Point-of Care Ultrasound within the practice of emergency medicine.
