Christiana Care Health System
Welcome, and thank you for your interest in the Advanced Emergency Medicine Ultrasound (AEMUS) Fellowship Program at Christiana Care Health System. Our program is accredited by the Emergency Ultrasound Fellowship Accreditation Council (EUFAC) and offers an intensive emergency ultrasound training program. Founded in 2001, our fellowship program accepts 1 to 2 ABEM certified or eligible emergency physicians per year. Graduation from this fellowship will allow candidates to sit for the Focus Practice Designation certification in AEMUS from the American Board of Emergency Medicine.
Our mission is to provide excellence in AEMUS education to our fellows in training. Our foremost goal is to train highly talented and motivated emergency physicians to become experts in the field. This entails mastering the critical aspects of emergency ultrasound performance, interpretation, documentation, billing, education, QA/QI, research and the administrative aspects of program operation. We endeavor to bring this technology to patients throughout the country by training future leaders and educators in advanced emergency ultrasound. The program operates within a top-rated institution that has the commitment to education, and the patient volume and acuity, to support the AEMUS fellow's training.
The ultrasound fellowship is part of a robust Emergency Medicine Ultrasound Program that is led by a team of fellowship-trained faculty who hold the FPD certification in AEMUS. Our program's faculty have been national leaders in point of care ultrasound and contributed to new and cutting-edge clinical applications, education, research and national policies and standards. Our faculty has also had multiple peer-reviewed publications.
Emergency Medicine's leadership position within Christiana provides a unique experience and enables fellows to participate in cutting edge research and policy formation. Our health system continually expands, creating new opportunities for our fellows. Our program has trained exceptional individuals over the years that have become leaders in academic, community and hybrid settings. Our fellows remain in contact long after fellowship as part of larger network that can interact with each other. This enables us to continue to learn and grow beyond the fellowship year. We constantly seek to improve the program and the education of our fellows.
Thank you again for your interest. We look forward to your application and our interview.
