Rutgers New Jersey Medical School
Thank you for your consideration of our Emergency Ultrasound Fellowship. We look forward to meeting you. Our fellowship seeks to engage and inspire our Fellows in the following four pillars: 1) clinical and technical acumen 2) education theory and curricular design 3) administration, including devising departmental protocol and billing/revenue systems 4) research and scholarly achievement.
Our ultrasound faculty is extremely dedicated to student, resident, and faculty education. Faculty members have protected clinical time to provide POCUS education, academic support, and tailoring of the fellowship towards the Fellow's specific goals. We provide opportunities to practice ultrasonography with faculty from multiple disciplines outside the Emergency Department, including the Medical Intensive Care Unit, Cardiac Anesthesia (Transesophageal Echocardiography), Cardiology, Regional Anesthesia, Neurology (Transcranial Doppler), and Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation (Musculoskeletal). We are intimately involved in the medical school through our administration of the longitudinal MS1-4 ultrasound curriculum, specialty-specific electives, and Ultrasound Interest Group. We also provide regular lectures at resident conference, administer both required rotations and advanced electives, and moderate the highly popular monthly Ultrasound Rounds. Our division also has significant departmental resources, research support, and mentorship.
