Ultrasound Project

Outside Lectures

We place great emphasis on giving fellows the opportunity to lecture nationally and also internationally.
All our Ultrasound Faculty, Drs Schafer, Hoffmann, Balk, and BEals frequently lecture in Europe, Africa, Australia, Arabia, Asia, and we have active exchange programs with many collaborators in Chile and South Africa and Europe.

Fellows are strongly encouraged to actively participate in these endeavors, and we have funding set aside for our fellows to pursue these opportunities

Internal Lectures

Weekly educational ultrasound lectures are given by the EUS faculty as per our weekly lecture schedule, we enjoy our quarterly guest lectures from outside faculty and fellow ultrasound aficionados, we also have a structured reading compendium for fellows paired with our lecture schedule

Our Monday ultrasound meetings are very lively interactive sessions with fellows, faculty, and rotating residents discussing their most challenging cases from the prior week

Ultrasound Courses

We consistently bring our fellows to courses from AAEM or New England Emergency Ultrasound course, MACEP, International courses from EUSEM, or EUROSON,
and we really encourage additional elective international ultrasound experiences for the fellow, for which we have funding set aside.


Mini-selectives can be offered on a case-by-case base


We frequently host visiting international observers and always expand our international collaborations
