Our institutional resources include a state-of-the-art simulation center, an active research team.

As an ultrasound fellow you will acquire competency with all of the applications recommended in the ACEP guidelines. Furthermore, you will learn advanced applications including, echocardiography to the critically ill patient and advanced pediatric applications taught by pediatric ultrasound trained faculty.

Our fellowship will also provide opportunities with established international ultrasound resources and participation in the international ultrasound teaching endeavors, such as the DevelopingEM ultrasound conference.

Our research team helps with proposals, IRB applications, research data acquisitions, and publications.

Our goal is to train experts in emergency ultrasound who will eventually grow to be leaders of emergency ultrasound. Most of our fellows graduate to become ultrasound division directors.
