Emergency medicine ultrasound has been integrated into our curriculum since 1998. All emergency medicine faculty are credentialed in the use of point-of-care ultrasound. We offer a fourth year student elective, a core resident rotation, and an emergency medicine ultrasound fellowship.

Curriculum 

We have a comprehensive ultrasound curriculum that includes primary and secondary applications of point-of-care ultrasonography. These topics are covered in didactic sessions and extensive hands-on time embedded into the core content lecture series. Interns participate in a four-week ultrasound rotation in which they gain the skill and knowledge necessary to perform emergency ultrasound. The rotation includes bedside scanning in the Emergency Department and ICU, evaluation of current emergency medicine ultrasound literature in journal club, case presentation, and video review.

Ultrasound Track

Residents in emergency medicine at Cooper have the opportunity to expand their academic knowledge and experience through our “track” system. Early in their training, residents pick a track that suits their interests, including ultrasound. Residents will have the opportunity to spend extra time learning and teaching ultrasound, participating in research, and attending regional and national ultrasound conferences. They may also pursue an ultrasound elective in their third year.

Medical School Curriculum

We are in the process of building a medical school curriculum for CMSRU, spearheaded by Dr. Sodhi. This model will focus on teaching general point of care ultrasound with a focus on bedside diagnoses and procedural competencies, using a multi-disciplinary team.

Medical Student Elective

Fourth-year medical students have the option to enroll in our emergency ultrasound elective.  This will include hands-on scanning time with ultrasound faculty, journal club, case presentations, and lectures with our radiology colleagues.

Emergency Medicine Ultrasound Fellowship

We offer a one year emergency medicine ultrasound fellowship under the leadership of Dr. Joshua Rempell. Fellows will be taught how to lead an ultrasound division while carrying out the core mission of ultrasound teaching and research within the emergency department.  We place an emphasis on a multidisciplinary approach with strong collaborations with the division of critical care and department of medicine.
