Ultrasound

Residents will receive longitudinal emergency ultrasound (EUS) instruction through lectures, scan reviews and extensive hands-on training in bedside ultrasound.  By the time of graduation, residents will have completed an extensive curriculum covering all basic and many advance applications in emergency bedside ultrasound as outlined by current published ACEP and SAEM training guidelines.  Completion of the curriculum will lead to a letter summarizing emergency ultrasound training that can be used by graduates for credentialing at the hospitals of their future employment. The curriculum has been developed by our Emergency Ultrasound Fellowship trained faculty. Our department has the latest in ultrasound equipment, including 5 cart based systems and 2 handheld scanning devices.
