Ultrasound Fellowship

This fellowship is designed to train emergency physicians to be leaders and content experts in emergency ultrasound.  Our fellowship program has been in existence since 2007, and boasts over 30 graduates who are now leaders nationally and internationally.  It is built on a foundation of years of clinical excellence in point of care ultrasound, as well as research and educational publications related to emergency ultrasound.  Our faculty are dedicated to the principle that ultrasound is part of every emergency physician's clinical practice, as well as to mentoring our fellows to become leaders in our field. Fellows will not only only be prepared as excellent sonologists, but will also be exposed to varied teaching opportunities across all educational levels (UME, GME and CME), learn how to set up, direct, and manage an ultrasound CQI 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.  

This fellowship is one-year in length and is affiliated with Denver Health Medical Center (DHMC). Clinical and scanning shifts will take place at DHMC, a Level 1 trauma center with a diverse and high-acuity patient population.  The Emergency Department at DHMC has state of the art ultrasound machines which the fellow will be trained on.
