Why Ultrasound: I have had a growing interest in POCUS and its application to the primary care setting for the past few years. This fellowship opportunity will help me grow my own skills in POCUS and bring the learning back to residents and colleagues to apply in the ambulatory setting. Not only will this be a great skill to eventually share with our residents, but I believe it will greatly improve patient care by decreasing diagnostic ambiguity and aiding real-time management decisions in the outpatient setting.

Why Ultrasound: I am doing the fellowship because I think this fellowship is on the cutting edge of medical care. Ultrasound now is so portable and has so many potential uses that make taking care of the patient faster, better and more efficient. Doing the fellowship will make me a better physician and it will give me a chance to grow, learn and be challenged in a different way.

Residency: Emergency Medicine Residency, University of Nebraska Medical Center
Why Ultrasound: Upon completing my residency at UNMC and gaining experience in a community ER, I discovered the invaluable role of ultrasound in resource-limited environments, facilitating swift and precise bedside diagnostics. My desire to elevate patient care and sharpen my expertise led me to pursue an ultrasound fellowship. My true passion lies in the realms of ultrasound-guided procedures, its application in caring for critically ill patients, and sharing its diverse potential with fellow physicians. By doing so, I aim to enhance patient care across various types of emergency rooms and contribute to the broader medical community.
