Pediatric Emergency Ultrasound Fellowship
The Pediatric Emergency Medicine Fellowship has a robust ultrasound curriculum developed and overseen by credentialed Pediatric Emeregency Medicine and Emergency Medicine ultrasound trained faculty. Fellows are trained in a broad range of pediatric emergency applications of point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS), including image acquisition and interpretation. Fellows receive dedicated didactic lectures on ultrasound topics as well as hands-on ultrasound skills teaching and feedback on images. Over the course of training, our fellows are expected to complete at least 300 scans and obtain credentialing in the core applications, including FAST exams, cardiac function, 1st trimester pregnancy, skin and soft tissue, and hemodynamic assessment via IVC evaluation. Fellows graduate with the skills necessary to perform and interpret these ultrasound images independently. With multiple ultrasound trained faculty and a dedicated ultrasound fellowship, there is also ample opportunity for PEM fellows to participate in scholarly activity in the field of POCUS. In addition, PEM fellows interested in gaining even more expertise in POCUS have the opportunity to participate in an ultrasound concentration within the PEM fellowship.
