Emergency Medicine Ultrasound Fellowship
Creighton University School of Medicine – Phoenix’s fellowship program in Emergency Medicine Ultrasound is ready to welcome you to the desert southwest.
This one-year fellowship program is considered non-Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (non-ACGME). Currently, our program recruits for 2 positions each year.
In 2018, Dignity Health St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center (SJHMC), Creighton University (CUSOM), Valleywise Health, and District Medical Group (DMG) joined forces to form the Creighton University Arizona Health Education Alliance. This partnership brings together a university recognized for providing outstanding training for students and residents in the health sciences and two healthcare systems known for their impressive history of caring for members of the greater Phoenix community.
About the Program
The Emergency Ultrasound Fellowship is a one-year program designed to train our fellows to be experts in all facets of emergency point-of-care ultrasound, including administration, education, and research. The fellowship is based at two Valleywise Health hospital campuses near the heart of downtown Phoenix, Arizona. The main campus serves as a tertiary level 1 trauma center that houses a 3-year EM residency program, and the secondary campus serves as a freestanding emergency department, both of which align with our mission to provide optimal medical care to all individuals of the valley, with a focus on the underserved.
The fellowship program is affiliated with the Creighton University School of Medicine (Phoenix). The program started in 2010 and we allow 1-2 fellows per academic year. As of 2021, we obtained full accreditation under the Emergency Ultrasound Fellowship Accreditation Council (EUFAC). As a result, we allow our fellows to become certified through the American Board of Emergency Medicine (ABEM) in advanced EM Ultrasonography via the Focused Practice Designation (FDP) upon graduation.
