Started in July 2012, our Ultrasound (US) Fellowship program is headed by US Fellowship-trained faculty members and supplemented by our Critical Care faculty, who use ultrasound extensively. Additionally, all our faculty are ultrasound credentialed, and most use it in their daily practice.
Our Emergency Medicine Department offers Ultrasound Fellows the opportunity to scan a high volume of trauma, critical care and pediatric patients. Our 3-year Residency Program has 10 residents per class, who are well-versed in emergency ultrasound and eager to learn from fellows. The Stony Brook campus houses an undergraduate university, medical school and PA/NP/PT/OT programs. Our other departments, including ICU and anesthesia, are excited to learn Point-of-Care Ultrasound (POCUS). There will be many interdepartmental teaching (and learning) opportunities throughout the hospital.
The Stony Brook Emergency Medicine Department also supports a Resuscitation & Critical Care Medicine Fellowship led by Brian Wright. Opportunities to combine fellowship experiences, including maximizing critical care time and international travel, will be encouraged.
