Program Description

The SAUSHEC 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 emergency physicians 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 Emergency Department and Intensive Care Unit throughput. 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.

Fellows receive extensive training in advanced and military relevant ultrasound techniques. Fellows also take a leadership role with resident ultrasound education and teach at the Medical Center of Excellence, 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 skill with point of care ultrasound and to focus on improving access across military medicine to this innovative and life-saving imaging modality.
