Disaster Medicine Fellowship

The UC Irvine School of Medicine fellowship in disaster medical sciences consists of a one-year or two-year, post-graduate program designed to provide education and experience in disaster medicine, international emergency medicine, and the management of public health emergencies. During training, the disaster medical sciences fellow will have duties and responsibilities not only with the emergency department, but also within the community. The curriculum will be based on the reference text, Koenig and Schultz’s Disaster Medicine:  Comprehensive Principles and Practice.  During the two-year disaster medicine program, fellows will obtain formal advanced training toward a master's degree in Public Health, Public Administration, or Business Administration, due to the growing need to understand disaster medicine in a broader public perspective. More Info>>

Ultrasound Fellowship

We are very excited about our elective in Emergency Ultrasound. Over the past decade, the clinical application of ultrasound by emergency physicians has greatly expanded. Emergency Physicians have adopted ultrasound to advance the timely and accurate evaluation and treatment of the acute patient. In 1994 the first emergency medicine ultrasound curriculum was published. It is a broadly written document that divides ultrasound into abdominal, pelvic and cardiac applications, and describes the many uses of ultrasound in emergency practice. Since this landmark publication, the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) has mandated that performance and interpretation of ultrasound imaging is included in emergency medicine residency training. While the quality of this training varies from residency to residency, one this is clear: nearly all EM residencies have added formal education in ultrasound in their curriculum, and emergency ultrasound is here to stay. More Info>>
