What a general learning schedule may look like during your fellowship.
See the calendar above for a sample schedule.
As an overview, fellows will be required to attend 2 Q/A (Image Review) days per week (Monday and Wednesday), each lasting approx. 2-4 hours. On Thursdays, fellows will scan in the ED with Emergency Ultrasound faculty in the afternoon.
Scan days are currently left for the fellow to schedule for themselves (those listed in the calendar are for demonstration only). These are to occur at Barnes-Jewish Hospital or St. Louis Children’s Hospital (if the fellow obtains SLCH privileges). It is ideal if the fellow schedules these when Ultrasound Faculty are working clinically
Every third Thursday is the Ultrasound Section meeting. During this, the Emergency Ultrasound section will deliver 2-3 hours of didactics to the fellows and section on topics ranging from core to advanced ultrasound topics to educational approaches to research methods to existentialism. These are followed by discussing section business and administration.
Asynchronous projects include the yearly Internal Ultrasound Bootcamp course, periodic community Emergency Provider courses, and Dr. Ablordeppy’s quarterly Critical Care ultrasound courses, and a yearly Pediatric Care Point-of-care Ultrasound Course (PICU POCUS). Fellows are generally provided opportunities to lecture during these courses in addition to helping with scanning stations.
