Ultrasound Fellowship

We are currently recruiting a fellow for our Ultrasound fellowship program that begins in July. We are the only emergency ultrasound fellowship program in Texas and for much of the mid-South. The fellowship includes didactic and hands-on training in ultrasound physics and the primary and advanced indications of emergency ultrasound. We believe in exploring new uses for ultrasound in the emergency department. We impart a well-rounded understanding of the ultrasound literature pertinent to EM practice. Opportunities to learn advanced echocardiography with the Division of Cardiology are available as well. Preparatory training for RDMS and RDCS is a component of the fellowship. The fellow is intricately involved in the education of second-year residents rotating on the emergency ultrasound elective. The fellow works with the director on all administrative duties, as we believe this to be an important component of the training. These include quality assurance, database management, resident and faculty education, machine maintenance, and training course coordination. The research requirement includes serving as primary investigator on at least one study and participating in the other EM ultrasound research projects. For further details, please contact Sara Miller, MD.
