Ultrasound Fellowship 

The SUNY Downstate/Kings County Hospital Center Emergency Ultrasound Fellowship is a one-year program dedicated to producing leaders in Emergency Ultrasound. The fellowship includes scanning shifts in the Emergency Department, video review and QA, bedside teaching and simulator training of medical students, residents and faculty, academic research and publication, and co-leadership of courses for community and academic physicians. Our institution has a combined census of >190,000 patient visits per year, includes a Level-I Adult and Pediatric Trauma Center, and offers exposure to a superb level of pathology and acuity. Fellows are appointed as Clinical Assistant Professors to the faculty of the Department of Emergency Medicine. Applicants must be residency trained and board certified/eligible in Emergency Medicine, and have completed a four-year residency or a three-year residency with at least one postgraduate year.
