Comprehensive & Cutting Edge Curriculum
Explores all aspects of Emergency Ultrasound including advanced ECHO (TTE & TEE), MSK ultrasound, ultrasound-guided regional anesthesia, ultrasound program administration, maintenance, credentialing, and billing. In addition, specific attention is given to educational techniques, how to provide a creative and engaging learning experience, and any specific area of interest for each fellow.
Fellowship offers a unique opportunity to explore novel ways to integrate ultrasound education with web, mobile, and VR, with exposure to every step of the development process. Curriculum is fully-integrated with a custom virtual reality ultrasound simulator, allowing individual or group learning for every core bedside scan. The simulator supports custom case creation for sharing interesting VR cases in seconds, even while on-shift. In addition, a robust website helps keep track of curriculum readings, scanning goals, and quizzes throughout the year.
