Pediatric Emergency Ultrasound Fellowship

The Department of Emergency Medicine and Division of Pediatric Emergency Medicine at the University of California San Francisco offers a one-year Pediatric Emergency Ultrasound Fellowship Program.

Our fellowship is a one-year experience for Pediatric Emergency Medicine fellowship-trained physicians. We aim to train leaders in PEM ultrasound education, research, and management. The fellow's curriculum will consist of scanning shifts supervised by ultrasound faculty at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospitals (San Francisco and Oakland), and at our other clinical sites (UCSF Medical Center and Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital [ZSFG] emergency departments), as well as individualized video review, didactic sessions, and opportunities for rotations in other departments. Compensation is commensurate with PGY level set by UCSF.
