Educational Experience

Our fellow's educational experience is primarily run by the ultrasound faculty within the department, as we feel strongly that the best way to learn the clinical applications of ultrasonography is from its use in emergency department patient care. However, there are opportunities that fellows have take advantage of in performing scans with cardiology, vascular, and pediatrics radiology.
