The 1-year Emergency Ultrasound Fellowship aims to train clinically expert sonologist physicians while offering exposure to a myriad of administrative, educational, research, and leadership opportunities. Our high acuity emergency department offers ample exposure to traumatic and medical pathologies in all ages. Along with ample scanning, fellows will focus on educating our residents, critical care fellows and faculty, and continuing medical education (CME) approved courses within Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center, regionally, and nationally. Uniquely, our institution is interdepartmentally strong and has started to develop an institution-wide point of care ultrasound (POCUS) program providing many administrative, credentialing, and interdepartmental opportunities. Additionally, our dynamic ultrasound faculty have interests in global health, wilderness medicine, under-resourced rural medical environments, and burgeoning Tele Ultrasound.

Many stakeholders, including our residents, have benefited from an increased presence of ultrasound. Residency leadership is exceedingly supportive of our fellowship and we are in constant communication on ways to enhance synergy and provide opportunities for residents and fellows to collaborate with faculty.

Fellows will have the title of clinical instructor in the emergency department.

For more information, and to apply, visit the Emergency Ultrasound Fellowship website. Applications are accepted from June 1 through November 1.

Dates for 2023-2024 fellowship interviews will be available soon. Please check back for updates.
