Emergency Medicine Ultrasound
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.
