Wilderness Medicine Fellowship

Physicians are increasingly being requested to practice medicine in remote and austere environments. The field of Wilderness Medicine encompasses disaster relief, travel, and expedition medicine and prepares physicians to practice in these unique environments. Utah offers an ideal location in which to learn and practice this specialty. High-altitude mountains, desert, and river environments surround the University of Utah.

Global Health Fellowship

Global Health is increasingly a catch all therm for any and all efforts that work towards achieving equity in healthcare and healthcare access amongst all populations world wide. Often, the problems practitioners confront in "Global Health" transcend politics, national borders and economic realities. This fellowship is geared towards the self directed learner with the stated aim to help develop and apply academic interest(s) in the context of care in resource poor settings and in dispossessed populations both locally and abroad.

Sports Medicine Fellowship

The University of Utah offers an academically based, multi-disciplinary fellowship in sports medicine. The fellowship is designed to provide the fellow with broad exposure to the full range of sports and musculoskeletal pathology. There is a particular focus on biomechanical, kinetic chain and exercise principles. The fellow works closely with faculty, fellows and residents in Emergency Medicine, Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, Orthopaedics, Radiology, Physical Therapy and Exercise and Sports Science. This one-year, ACGME accredited, comprehensive training program is based at the University of Utah Orthopaedic Center (UOC).

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.
