Curriculum

 
Along with mentored clinical ultrasound scanning each month the fellow learns from nurses, sonographers, and specialists from other academic programs. The lessons learned in the skills lab are practiced in the trauma bay, ICU or ED patient room. In addition to academic scan requirements to complete the fellowship, a research project is required for graduation. Fellows will be expected to perform over 800 ultrasound exams over the entire year. Requisite requirements to sit for the RDMS certification exam will be fulfilled but NOT required during the fellowship.
 
This ultrasound program has a highly advanced infrastructure and a significant sonographic footprint within the institution. With ultrasound penetrance into the medical school curriculum the students set the bar for basic ultrasound. Residents use ultrasound during most rotations and relations with other specialties is facilitated by teaching and learning within different areas of the hospitals. Facilities include a skills lab with 10 ultrasound machines, blue phantoms and plans to build an ultrasound specific training area. The clinical EM setting has 4 machines at the main ED, and two at the East ED. All ultrasound images are stored on PACS or a RadWeb intranet for educational scans. PACS connectivity and 100% Q/A is the intended policy for all ED ultrasound scans.
