Department of Emergency Medicine

Division of Ultrasound Medicine

Our Ultrasound department is excited to be starting a fellowship in July of 2010! We will be taking one fellow per year. Colleen Campbell, MD RDMS is the Fellowship Director and director of Emergency Ultrasound. Mary Beth Johnson MD will be the Associate Fellowship Director.

Anthony Medak, MD is the Associate Director of Emergency Ultrasound and the director for our medical student elective in Emergency Ultrasound. This elective will be available to fourth year medical students starting in the fall of 2010. The students will take part in Quality Assurance meetings bi-monthly and will have extensive didactic and hands-on ultrasound experience during their elective. They will gain skills in ultrasound guided procedures during this rotation.

Our residents graduate with certification in Emergency Ultrasound after doing four weeks of ultrasound during their training period. They complete at least 150 scans during their residency as outlined by ACEP guidelines. We also have had the opportunity to have rotating residents from other programs complete one month electives in Ultrasound. We have several ongoing US research projects and are in the process of starting several more.

We are active in training other faculty in US and have many other faculty who are near certification in Emergency Ultrasound.
Our department meets on the first and third Wednesdays of every month for QA sessions at 10:00 am in the Baxt conference room. During these sessions interesting US scans are reviewed, and appropriate feedback is provided to residents and attendings. We have journal club after QA sessions during which we review current literature pertinent to emergency ultrasound.

We have brand new Zonare US machines in our departments as well as GE logics. Click here to view the Zonare Inservice Video.

We look forward to many happy scanning days ahead!
