Our mission is to support high quality, accurate, evidence-based utilization of emergency ultrasound (EUS) in the emergency department and critical care settings, advance EUS implementation and dissemination through education and research, and develop future leaders in EUS.

We are at the forefront of collaboration to ensure the value of EUS is recognized throughout the episode of care and in various acute care environments (academic, community, pediatrics, critical care).


Daniel Theodoro, MD, MSCI FPD-AEMUS

Chief, Division of Emergency Ultrasound (DEUS)
Associate Professor of Emergency Medicine

Our division aims to create an ‘ultrasound first’ approach to common acute emergencies encountered in academic or community settings to deliver equitable care that improves patient outcomes, to push the boundaries of discovery through innovation, and to develop future leaders.



Our clinical program is accredited by the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) Clinical Ultrasound Accreditation Program (CUAP). We offer robust education, maintain quality assurance, follow accepted safety guidelines and maintain high clinical standards of all our ultrasound applications. Our diverse and multidisciplinary faculty teach innovative emergency ultrasound and discover novel ways to implement the clinical practice of emergency ultrasound as informed by the best evidence.


Our accredited Advanced Emergency Medicine Ultrasound (AEMUS) Fellowship pushes our fellows to learn how to challenge boundaries and improve patient care in an innovative environment with rich pathology.

Resident training

Our resident training program consists of an intern introduction session and a one-month rotation in emergency medicine ultrasound. Additionally, third and fourth year residents can enroll in an advanced ultrasound elective to enhance their skills with more challenging applications such as regional anesthesia, advanced cardiologic assessment and sports medicine applications.

Medical student rotation

Through our fourth year medical student elective, the student is assigned to a faculty member to learn basic ultrasound techniques and emergency applications.

Continuing medical education

We offer continuing medical education to our clinical faculty through bi-annual courses, weekly image review rounds, and personalized scanning shifts in order to meet ACEP’s credentialing guidelines. The division also offers monthly ultrasound didactics on the third Thursday morning of every month open to all interested parties.


Our ultrasound faculty have advanced clinical research training in clinical sciences as well as dissemination and implementation science to facilitate the adoption of evidence-based ultrasound applications. Several members of the division manage active research labs and lead national emergency point of care ultrasound organizations.

Residents and fellows can take advantage of this robust research environment to develop, implement and disseminate findings that advance the field of emergency ultrasound.
