Welcome to Southern California, we are excited about your interest in our program!

The Riverside Clinical Ultrasound Fellowship is a one year Emergency Ultrasound Fellowship Accreditation Council (EUFAC) accredited program. Fellowship graduates from our program are eligible to sit for the Focused Practice Designation (FPD) examination through the American Board of Emergency Medicine (ABEM).

The Riverside Clinical Ultrasound Fellowship program's mission is to develop the next generation of physicians and physician leaders. This program is designed to offer fellows a rewarding, educational environment where fellows are provided individualized learning opportunities by faculty and staff who support and sustain one another throughout quality care delivery. In addition, to honing emergency ultrasound skills in a busy, academic training environment our fellows will also be involved in ultrasound development in low-resource environments. Our faculty are committed to ensuring the fellows' clinical experience and educational needs are fulfilled while expanding fellows' perspectives to be inclusive of cultures, values, and ideals.
