The one-year, Emergency Ultrasound Fellowship Program at Emory University Emergency Medicine concentrates on the educational, scientific, and administrative aspects of Emergency Ultrasound. As one of the largest hospital-based services and Emergency departments in the country, Emergency Ultrasound Fellows are offered the opportunity to master the skills of point of care ultrasound through the development of a research project, medical student, resident and faculty education in emergency bedside ultrasound, and through regular participation in weekly image review and quality assurance activities. Moreover, the fellow will become familiar with the image management process and technology, credentialing of faculty members, and the development and maintenance of an Emergency Ultrasound Program.
The Emergency Ultrasound Fellow will work clinically at one of Emory’s campuses of mutual choosing, which include the Emory University Hospital, Emory University Hospital Midtown, or the VA. As an attending physician, the Emergency Ultrasound Fellow will provide outstanding medical care to patients in a hospital emergency department. The Emergency Ultrasound Fellow will evaluate, treat and stabilize patients with emergent medical conditions, illnesses or injuries. Shifts will consist of 8 or 9-hour day, evening, and night shifts.
