Pediatric Emergency Ultrasound Fellowship
The Pediatric Emergency Ultrasound Fellowship at NewYork-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital is one of the first pediatric-specific point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) fellowship in the country. The program is designed to cultivate highly-trained emergency ultrasound specialists as clinical experts and scholars in the use of POCUS for the care of acutely ill and injured children.
Our mission is to provide a strong foundation in basic and cutting edge point-of-care pediatric emergency ultrasound. The breadth of pathology in our Emergency Department provides a comprehensive hands-on scanning experience that is complimented by mentorship from an active academic faculty. We aim to train POCUS leaders who will become strong scholars and future researchers in the field of emergency ultrasound and who are capable of running their own ultrasound programs.
Our fellowship is based at NewYork-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital, a Level 1 Pediatric Trauma Center that sees over 55,000 pediatric patients per year in a state-of-the-art facility. We have 6 ultrasound machines for clinical, educational, and research use. We represent one of the largest groups of pediatric POCUS specialists in the country, with 4 ultrasound-trained pediatric emergency faculty and a majority of our attendings credentialed in basic POCUS applications. The fellowship is a 1-year experience in compliance with ACEP standards for emergency ultrasound fellowships. We accept 1-2 fellows per year.
