Prisma Health - Upstate (Greenville)

Program Description

Type of Program

Our fellowship program is 1 year long and provides a unique and robust fellowship opportunity. The Division of Emergency Ultrasound is well established and supported within the Department of Emergency Medicine. The Greenville Memorial Hospital is a level 1 trauma center with 710 patient beds, is the regional referral center for the Upstate, and provides care for >100,000 patient visits per year. The emergency medicine residency is ACGME accredited and the University of South Carolina - School of Medicine Greenville is located on the campus of Greenville Memorial Hospital. The Division of Emergency Ultrasound manages point-of-care ultrasound education for the Department, credentialing, and administrative operations for 7 emergency departments within the health system. The Division oversees the approximate 10,000 point-of-care ultrasound scans that are performed each year in the emergency departments within the system. 6 of the emergency departments are accredited by ACEPs Clinical Ultrasound Accreditation Program.

The size of our health system, the educational responsibilities our Division holds for emergency medicine faculty/residents & medical students, the established ultrasound workflow within the emergency departments, and support the Division receives from the Department creates an environment rich with educational and research opportunities in addition to robust and diverse clinical practice environments.
