Emergency Medicine Ultrasound Fellowship

Further your career as an emergency physician, educator and researcher by training in advanced ultrasound techniques in our Emergency Medicine Ultrasound Fellowship.

Why emergency medicine ultrasound?

Become certified as a Registered Diagnostic Cardiac Sonographer (RDCS) in adult echocardiography specialty and a Registered Diagnostic Medical Sonographer in abdomen specialty, with optional musculoskeletal and vascular ultrasound credentials, in our dedicated ultrasound program. In 2018, our fellows had a 100% pass rate on these certification exams.

Take advantage of simulators, phantoms and modern ultrasound machines in the Sentara Center for Simulation & Immersive Learning at EVMS. Train with experts who set the standard for ultrasound education to make an even stronger impact on emergency medicine.
