Ultrasound Fellows are hired as junior faculty in the department of Emergency Medicine. Although the below benefits are for fellows in ACGME fellowship, they serve as a guide of what our fellows can expect.
The emergency ultrasound fellow will advance their skills with an average of 8 to 10 dedicated scanning shifts monthly, during which the fellowship director will provide direct hands on training. These scanning shifts are spent in the Emergency Department directly with the fellowship director or ultrasound faculty, with only ultrasound specific responsibilities during the shifts.
The fellow will develop teaching skills through 20 hours per month of hands-on teaching of residents in bedside emergency ultrasound, and delivery of at least 4 emergency ultrasound lectures to residents, medical students, and other learners.
Fellow seminars are regular didactic sessions spent with the fellowship director to develop the fellow’s knowledge base.

- Resident/faculty image review
- Skills workshops

- Simulation sessions
- Cadaver labs
- Medical student clerkship training
