SonoSite Exporte machines are used at all of the clinical sites where our fellows work and scan. At our main sites, we also have SonoSite SII for our peripheral IVs and other procedures. Our images and clips are uploaded to the patient’s electronic medical records and are available for real time review by our ultrasound team as well as the remainder of the patient’s care team.
Our emergency ultrasound fellows spend time primarily working in four emergency departments throughout their time in training. They will spend time on scanning shifts at both Washington Hospital Center and Georgetown University’s emergency departments in Washington DC. They will also work clinically as attendings at MedStar Union Memorial Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland and MedStar Southern Maryland Hospital in Clinton, Maryland. Through their work in these different sites, they are exposed to a wide breadth of practice environments from urban academic departments to more suburban community departments.
Emergency Ultrasound is well embedded into the emergency medicine residency. Each resident begins their training with a two day ultrasound boot camp followed by a dedicated ultrasound immersion week where they scan in the emergency department with fellows and ultrasound faculty members. Our residents then complete a total of 8 additional ultrasound scanning days throughout the remaining time in residency. The majority of attending physicians working in the academic centers are credentialed to perform and interpret their own bedside ultrasounds, supervising the resident scans during their clinical shifts. All of the bedside ultrasounds performed in the departments are reviewed by the ultrasound team members. Once reviewed, both faculty and residents receive email feedback on the technique and interpretation of their scans.. Many residents also choose to spend time with our department during elective rotations.
