The University of Arizona Advanced Emergency Medicine Ultrasonography Fellowship is a one-year Emergency Ultrasound Fellowship Accreditation Council (EUFAC) accredited program developed to train future leaders in emergency ultrasound. Our fellowship program is led by highly dedicated, accomplished faculty committed to quality teaching, research, and clinical practice. Point-of-care ultrasound is routinely used by residents and faculty for patient evaluation in our emergency department. Multiple emergency medicine faculty members are credentialed by the hospital to perform and interpret point-of-care ultrasound examinations. We have several ultrasound machines (Zonare, Philips, Mindray, Sonosite and GE) for scanning in our emergency department. We have a web-based image archival system (QpathE) to manage quality assurance, teaching, research, billing, and credentialing. Currently, there are five (5) fellows in our Emergency Ultrasound Fellowship program.

Our goal is to provide you with the tools and expertise necessary to run an emergency ultrasound program. We follow the Advanced Emergency Medicine Ultrasonography Fellowship Program requirements established by American Board of Emergency Medicine (ABEM) and fellowship graduates from our program are eligible to sit for the Focused Practice Designation (FPD) examination through the ABEM. Fellows will be trained in all aspects of Emergency Ultrasound, including advanced ultrasound applications; resident and faculty education; research and grant writing; ultrasound workflow; image management; equipment maintenance; credentialing; billing; documentation, and reimbursement. Graduates of this fellowship will be equipped with skills required to function competently in the role of Emergency Ultrasound Director in both academic and community settings and Emergency Ultrasound Fellowship Director in an academic environment.  We are honored and proud to receive the Steller Clinicial Ultrasound Program Award at SCUF22. We hope you will consider being a part of our emergency ultrasound program.
