Christiana Care’s Emergency Ultrasound Fellowship offers an intensive emergency ultrasound training program. Founded in 2001, our fellowship program accepts 1 to 2 ABEM/AOBEM certified or eligible emergency physicians per year. Fellows receive training and education specific not only to basic and advanced applications, but also in emergency ultrasound program design, QA/QI, documentation, billing and advanced educational presentation techniques.
The ultrasound fellowship is part of a robust Emergency Point of Care Ultrasound Program that is led by a team of fellowship-trained faculty.
The US Fellowship Director is Jennifer T. Mink, M.D., FACEP.
The Associate Fellowship and POCUS Program Director is Jason T. Nomura, M.D., FACEP, FAAEM.
The Assistant POCUS Program Director is Ashley T. Panicker, M.D., FAAEM.
Additional US faculty includes the Chair of the Emergency Department John T. Powell, M.D., FACEP, MHCDS, as well as Associate EM Residency Director Justin C. Stowens, M.D., FACEP, FAAEM.
Our fellowship assists in both didactic and practical training of residents for the over 5,000 yearly ED ultrasounds that we now perform. The fellowship and our faculty have contributed to EM US research and pioneered many ED US applications such as advanced procedural ultrasound, advanced cardiac evaluations, aortic dissection identification, vascular, tendon, and ocular ultrasounds. The US faculty has lectured regionally and nationally on Emergency Ultrasound with multiple publications in peer reviewed journals.
The Emergency Ultrasound Fellowship at Christiana Care is but one facet of our active EM Ultrasound Program, but one that we are very proud of given its activities and success. We welcome any questions you may have about our program.
