This fellowship is designed to train leaders in pediatric emergency ultrasound and is built on the foundation of clinical excellence in bedside ultrasound use, research and educational publications related to emergency ultrasound, and a faculty that is dedicated to the principle that ultrasound is integral to every emergency physician’s clinical practice. Fellows will be prepared as excellent sonologists, be exposed to varied teaching opportunities, learn how to set up, direct, and manage an ultrasound QI program, and will be expected to formulate, initiate, and complete two original research projects. In order to accomplish this, the fellow will have access to a rich clinical environment, a research associate program, statistical support, and attending staff with strong academic backgrounds. The fellow will also work with the Radiology, Gynecology, Pediatric, NICU, and PICU departments to gain additional ultrasound skills and knowledge.
This fellowship is one-year in length and is affiliated with Denver Health Medical Center (DHMC). Clinical and scanning shifts will take place primarily on state of the art machines at DHMC, a Level 1 general trauma center and Level 2 pediatric trauma center with a diverse and high-acuity patient population. Additional lectures and scanning shifts will take place at University of Colorado Hospital and Children's Hospital Colorado, a regional Level 1 pediatric trauma center. The successful candidate will have completed or plan to complete their Pediatric Emergency Medicine fellowship.
