Prisma Health Richland (formerly Palmetto Health)
Welcome to the Prisma Health Richland Emergency Ultrasound Fellowship Program, and thanks for your interest. We are located in beautiful Columbia SC. The Palmetto Health system recently merged with Greenville Health to become Prisma Health at the beginning of 2019. Our fellowship has been around since 2006 and we only expect better things to come with our new name.
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.
