To Make an Appointment

Welcome to the Emergency Ultrasound Fellowship

The Emergency Ultrasound Fellowship gives fellows the experience they need to run an ultrasound division and learn the administrative skills to become future leaders in point-of-care ultrasound. The fellows will start their research projects and participate in multiple ongoing research projects in the division. Fellows will attend and present their research at regional, national, and international conferences.

Fellows will use  5  Zonare and  1  Mindray TE7 machines

The Emergency Ultrasound Fellowship Program

The Emergency Ultrasound Fellowship experience

There are approximately  10,000  ultrasounds performed in the Maimonides ED every year. It is by far the most common procedure performed in our ED. All ultrasounds performed in the department are recorded and reviewed, which allows residents to receive detailed feedback.

All aspects of sonography are covered during residency training, including advanced topics such as advanced echocardiography, musculoskeletal, ocular and procedural guidance. Fellows gain experience in sonographic guidance of vascular access, paracentesis, thoracentesis, pericardiocentesis, arthrocentesis, and lumbar puncture. Our residents are taught how to perform ultrasound-guided regional analgesia, including fascia iliaca compartment blocks, interscalene nerve block, and various other peripheral nerve blocks.

Graduates of the Emergency Medicine residency program will be proficient in using this important technology and adept in utilizing ultrasonography when managing critically ill patients, as most will have performed at least  300  ultrasounds during their training. Some motivated residents have completed close to  1000  ultrasounds by graduation. We believe that point-of-care ultrasonography is life-saving and makes us better doctors.

Rotations

Emergency Ultrasonography is well-integrated into the curriculum of the Emergency Medicine Residency at Maimonides. Residents spend  4  weeks in each of their first  2  years on an ultrasound rotation. During the rotation, residents participate in small group scan shifts with faculty members and fellows from the Emergency Ultrasound Division, as well as weekly ultrasound review/QA sessions. This combination allows the residents to become proficient in performing and interpreting a wide array of point-of-care ultrasounds.

All of our adult attending emergency physicians are licensed in each of the  12  ACEP core emergency ultrasound applications

Research

The ultrasound division has numerous ongoing research projects. Our residents and fellows participate in different projects and have dedicated research support to start their project. Many of our projects focus on teaching modules and incorporating ultrasound and simulation to improve procedural skills in our trainees. We also have projects in cutting edge applications such as transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) in cardiac arrest.

You’ll perform: 300 ultrasounds during training and 1000 ultrasounds by graduation

The future of medical care is you

Our program strives to provide the best educational experience in an environment that assures a balance between academic and clinical activities. We take great pride in our success in preparing residents to become the next generation of expert practitioners.
