Program Description

The Madigan Emergency Ultrasound Fellowship is a 1-year advanced point-of-care ultrasound education program for clinicians interested in becoming experts and leaders in this growing subspecialty. Point-of-care ultrasound has been used extensively by trained clinicians to improve diagnostic accuracy at the bedside, safely guide invasive procedures, rapidly detect life threatening pathology, avoid unnecessary ionizing radiation for the patient, monitor the effects of an ongoing resuscitation, and improve throughput. The majority of military medical specialties are beginning to recognize the benefit of this tool in their workflow. It has also seen extensive use on the battlefield to facilitate triage decisions, justify utilization of scarce medical assets such as medical evacuation, and resuscitate critically wounded soldiers. All fellows receive extensive training in advanced and military relevant ultrasound techniques. Fellows are also expected to take a leadership role with resident ultrasound education. They teach locally and at multiple conferences, providing experience and competency with teaching ultrasound to a wide variety of students. This fellowship is an excellent choice for any physician looking to improve their ultrasound knowledge and skill as well as to develop into the next innovative ultrasound force multipliers across the Military Health System.
