Ultrasound Fellowship

Fellows will be required to obtain 1000 ultrasound exams during the year. We digitally record all exams, which then go to PACS, and we have a weekly video review QA session. Fellows will teach medical students, residents, and pediatric fellows in the hospital and have the opportunity to teach ultrasound courses at the regional and national levels. Research projects are expected and supported by the faculty and research administration. Fellows have access to multiple forms of online ultrasound education produced for Ultrasound Podcast by the leaders in emergency ultrasound. Fellows have access to multidisciplinary echo based resuscitation course and opportunities to learn TEE. Please contact fellowship director, Dr. Ockerse at patrick.ockerse@hsc.utah.edu if you have any questions.
