Ultrasound Fellowship Education

Our ultrasound fellowship education is comprehensive in its approach and designed to prepare you for the many facets of being an ultrasound director. The overarching themes of your educational experience will be:
1) Technical expertise: Fellows will be trained to perform, interpret and teach all basic and advanced applications, normal versus abnormal anatomy, routine and rare findings. This will be accomplished via scanning shifts, didactic teaching sessions, hands-on education, asynchronous learning, and other educational opportunities.
2) Program administration: Fellows will participate in the credentialing process, image review, billing monitoring, database management, machine care and acquisition.
3) Teaching: Fellows will assist in teaching at all levels- residents, medical students, faculty, interdepartmental- in a variety of didactic and hands-on sessions that will develop their skills as a lecturer and educator.
4) Research: In addition to developing and implementing their own research project, fellows will have the opportunity to participate in collaborative projects. Through regular literature review, fellows will become astute consumers of up-to-date emergency ultrasound research.
