Pediatric Emergency Ultrasound Fellowship
The Pediatric Emergency Ultrasound Fellowship at Columbia University Vagelos College of Physicians & Surgeons aims to cultivate highly trained leaders in the field of pediatric point-of-care ultrasound. The fellowship is based at New York-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital, which is a Level 1 Pediatric Trauma Center that sees 60,000 pediatric patients per year in a state-of-the-art facility. We represent one of the largest groups of pediatric emergency ultrasound specialists in the country, with 6 trained Pediatric Emergency Ultrasound faculty, and most of our faculty are credentialed in basic point-of-care ultrasound applications. We are part of the broader Emergency Ultrasound Division that has an additional 8 General Emergency Ultrasound Faculty and 1 General Emergency Ultrasound Fellow.
Our mission is to train Pediatric Emergency Ultrasound leaders who will become strong scholars and future researchers in the field of pediatric emergency ultrasound capable of running their own ultrasound programs. The breadth of pathology in our department provides a comprehensive hands-on scanning experience that is complimented by teaching and mentorship from active faculty. Fellows develop a strong foundation in basic and cutting-edge point-of-care emergency ultrasound and have the opportunity to teach a variety of learners. Over the course of training, our fellows are expected to complete 1000 scans and obtain credentialing in core and advanced applications. Fellows work on a scholarly product with mentorship and guidance from our academically productive faculty.
