The UC Davis Health System Department of Emergency Medicine offers a one or two-year fellowship track in Global Health and Emergency Ultrasound. The two-year fellowship includes advanced training in point of care ultrasound and global health, an opportunity for over six months of global work, and a Masters in Public Health.  

Fellows spend significant time performing, reviewing, and supervising emergency ultrasound examinations and will be integral to the departmental ultrasound quality improvement review process. Fellows will participate in resident and medical student ultrasound education. Fellows will also have significant scanning time and opportunities to perform research, if interested. Fellows will develop skills in ultrasound program administration, ultrasound education and training, quality improvement, and advanced ultrasound applications, and will be eligible to sit for the RDMS exam during their fellowship.

Fellows develop an additional skill set utilizing ultrasound in low resource health systems and will spend significant time building and maintaining global educational programs. This includes bedside teaching, curriculum development, and interfacing with key stakeholders.  Fellows may select either a Masters in Public Health or Diploma of International Medicine and Public Health.  

Interested applicants must have completed an Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME)-approved Emergency Medicine training program before beginning the training program.  Applicants should apply through the ultrasound fellowship match system.
