The residency program provides a robust ultrasound experience for every resident. You will have a dedicated two-week ultrasound rotation during your intern year immersing in the basics of emergency ultrasound as well as a continued longitudinal exposure throughout your first year. The rotation is led by our expert, ultrasound fellowship trained faculty. More importantly, you will continue to utilize and practice ultrasound throughout the course of your residency. Upon completion of your residency will feel comfortable with and know how to incorporate point of care ultrasound in your daily clinical practice.
The department has two cart-based point-of-care ultrasound machines to allow for residents and faculty to regularly perform exams. Throughout your residency you will become proficient at all eleven of the ACEP recommended imaging modalities. With the benefit of having two fellowship-trained faculty, you will also have significant experience with advanced ultrasound applications as well.
All EM faculty are credentialed to perform point of care ultrasound by the institution, which enables our ED physicians to make critical clinical decisions based on their own exams and deliver state of the art care to our patients.
