Benefits of our two-year AEMUS fellowship

  • Fellows are paired with world-class mentors in their area of interest to explore Emergency Ultrasound through the lenses of innovation and design, social emergency medicine, global health, and information technology, and exploration into other areas is encouraged. Select the " Fellows" tab above to see how previous fellows have capitalized on this.

  • Collaboration between fellows and mentors is a cornerstone of the first year. Fellows and mentors craft impactful research and administrative projects, laying the groundwork for a successful academic career.

  • In the first year, fellows complete all core AEMUS fellowship requirements, allowing ample time in the second year to deepen their focus area, secure a prestigious faculty position, and assume, leadership roles in the ultrasound section and beyond.
