Emergency Ultrasound Fellowship

AMERICAN COLLEGE OF EMERGENCY PHYSICIANS ACCREDITED - CLINICAL ULTRASOUND

The Stanford Emergency Ultrasound Fellowship is a two-year program with an option for obtaining an associated Master’s degree (MPH, MS, etc) or additional specialized training tailored to each fellow's career goals (biodesign, global health, etc.).

The goal of the program is to provide fellows with all the skills necessary to become leaders in Clinical Ultrasound and function in the role of Emergency Ultrasound Director in either a community or academic setting. The fellowship offers an opportunity to study under recognized leaders in the field, utilize state-of-art equipment and access experts from around the world.

Expert Faculty

There are currently 8 ultrasound fellowship-trained faculty in the Stanford Emergency Department, as well as a physician dual trained in pediatrics and emergency ultrasound. 

State-of-art Equipment

We currently have four GE Venue, four Mindray TE7, and two Philips ClearVue machines housed in the new Emergency Department which opened in October 2019.

We also have four Sonosite EDGE I and II ultrasound systems which are housed in the Pediatric Emergency Department; one of these machines has dedicated pediatric linear, echo, and abdominal probes.

Ten Butterfly units with associated i-pads are available for clinical use, and three additional portable V-Scans can be used during scanning shifts for educational purposes.

In our simulation center we have access to additional ultrasound machines, simulation mannequins, SonoSim, and a Vimedix Cardiac Ultrasound simulator which allows both TTE and TEE simulation.

Inter-departmental Collaboration

We collaborate closely with our Trauma Surgery service, which uses ultrasound routinely, and our Radiology Department. Both have provided phenomenal high-end didactic education and partnered with us on research projects.

Our Cardiology Echo Lab is highly supportive of our fellowships and ultrasound research, with opportunities for advanced echo and critical care US education in their echo lab and with the critical care fellows.
