Additional Opportunities

International opportunities abound as our division has close ties with the Center for Global Health at MGH and with WINFOCUS. The fellow is encouraged but not required to spend time in an underdeveloped part of the world, performing and teaching ultrasound.

Teaching opportunites at MGH are numerous as well, as we participate in at least 3 outside courses yearly, and help train surgical, internal medicine, and pediatric residents in emergency ultrasound. We also teach an Emergency Ultrasound elective for senior Harvard Medical School students and have access to 2 simulation labs within HAEMR.

Educational Experience

Fellowship teaching is provided by Drs. Liteplo, Huang, and Shokoohi. In addition, educational opportunities for additional training by other MGH departments exist.
