Patient Care

The primary goal of emergency ultrasound is to improve patient care. Therefore, the focus of the emergency ultrasound fellowship must begin with clinical care. The program is based at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine, which boasts a nationally recognized four-year emergency medicine residency program. Our clinical sites offer unmatched emergency and subspecialty care, and one of the most diverse patient populations in the world.
