The Advanced Emergency Medicine Ultrasound Fellowship at the University of Maryland is a 1-year EUFAC approved fellowship with 1-2 positions per year. Our fellowship was originally established in 2005 and provides opportunities to learn advanced applications of POCUS and to become skillful educators as well as leaders in the world of POCUS.
Our teritary emergency department allows ultrasound fellows the opportunity to scan patients with various pathologies. We have numerous resoucres for educating our fellows including our Intelligent Ultrasound BodyWorks and HeartWorks simulator and SonoSim laptops. Fellows also have access to cadevar lab on campus. Fellows are required to be involved in scholarly projects. The School of Medicine and our department provide numerous resources to help fellows with their scholarly projects including an onsite library with access to 3D printing, technical writing support and grant support. Lastly, fellows will perform an average of 8 clinical shifts per month at one of our academic affiliated hospitals.
Fellows teach our residents and medical students twice weekly during our daily ultrasound rounds and also have the opportunity to teach at continuing medical education courses. We encourage local and national involvement in ultrasound activities.
The fellows will obtain 1000 images over their fellowship year. They will have weekly lectures and journal club. During this time fellows will also share interesting cases and have time for ultrasound simulation. The lecture topics are in a block schedule and cover a variety of advanced ultrasound topics. We find that administration is also a large component of ultrasound fellowship and will attempt to involve the fellows in departmental and hospital ultrasound meetings. Fellows have the opportunity to go to national conferences, including the ACEP ultrasound administrative conference and an ultrasound physics course.
We participate in the NRMP fellowship match for ultrasound. We accept applicants who are board prepared or board certified in Emergency Medicine. Applications should be submitted through eusfellowships and should include letter of interest, CV and three (3) letters of recommendation.
