Ultrasound Fellowship Education

The mission of the Emergency Ultrasound Fellowship is to develop highly motivated emergency physicians into future educators and researchers with expertise in the wide application of ultrasound technology to direct patient care. We strive to provide one of the best ultrasound fellowships available with a unique combination of experiences not available anywhere else in the country.

Working closely with the University of South Carolina School of Medicine, the curriculum not only provides fellows with the opportunity to work side-by-side with experts in emergency ultrasound, echocardiography, and vascular ultrasound, but also develop educational skills through lecturing and bed side teaching to residents, medical students, and practicing physicians. Unique to this experience is that the fellow will be an integral component to the development and function of the clinical ultrasound curriculum at the USC School of Medicine.
