We are happy to announce that the University of California-San Diego / Rady Children’s hospital, San Diego, California is offering a Pediatric Point- of- care Ultrasound fellowship position.
Rady Children’s Hospital-San Diego is a 551-bed pediatric care facility providing the largest source of comprehensive pediatric medical services in San Diego, Southern Riverside and Imperial counties. It is also the only hospital in the San Diego area dedicated exclusively to pediatric healthcare and is the region’s only designated level 1 Pediatric trauma center.
San Diego is known for its great weather, miles of sandy beaches and other major tourist attractions and is an ideal place for both work and leisure.
The goal of the fellowship is to train leaders in Point-of Care Ultrasound with advanced knowledge and experience in ultrasound education, research and administration. Program graduates will be provided with the tools and expertise necessary to assume Pediatric Point-of Care Ultrasound leadership positions. This main goal is to be achieved through training in 3 areas:
Didactic Education: Provide advanced education in emergency ultrasound through hands-on and interactive, didactic educational opportunities. Rady Children’s hospital has an annual census of approximately 80,000. This volume provides a large diversity of pathology for a unique educational experience. The fellow will also rotate through the university of California- San Diego medical centers where they will receive training in adult specific applications.
Research: Provide opportunities for further research in new and established ultrasound applications.
Administration: Gain special expertise to teach and oversee administrative aspects of Point-of Care Ultrasound within the practice of emergency medicine.
The fellowship duration is one year and we are currently accepting applications for the July 2018-June 2019 academic year. Potential candidates must be Pediatric Emergency Medicine board eligible or certified.
