The fellow will be able to take advantage of being part of a young program that will be growing substantially over the next years. The benefit of being part of growing program cannot be overstated. It is an invaluable experience that will prepare our fellow to lead locally and regionally in their future career, whether it be in community or academic practice.
The fellow will develop advanced clinical ultrasound skills, and will have the opportunity to learn the nuances of Emergency Ultrasound that will prepare them for daily use in their clinical practice. After the acquisition of advanced skills, the fellow will then hone the teaching skills necessary to lead ultrasound within any Emergency department, whether community-based or academic. This will be accomplished through active involvement in simulation; Medical Student education; resident lectures, bedside teaching; continued staff development and interdepartmental relationships. Throughout the year, the fellow will participate in the development and administration of the ultrasound program, including unique opportunities to innovate in ultrasound education (fresh tissue models; advanced simulation; virtual reality; and augmented virtual reality). Through these experiences, our fellow will be prepared to tackle the administrative and educational challenges that exist within any ultrasound program. Additionally, our program benefits from experiences of both a major academic medical center (volume 60K) and a community site (volume 35K). This will allow recent residency graduates to experience both practice environments and determine their ideal future practice.
This is a one year fellowship
After completion of the program the fellow will be able to hold or be board eligible a Focused Practice Designation in AEMUS by the American Board of Emergency Medicine.
