Sunnybrook Emergency Ultrasound Fellowship

Sunnybrook Emergency Ultrasound Fellowship

We are accepting applications for the Sunnybrook Emergency Ultrasound Fellowship. Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre is a 1200 bed tertiary care academic centre and Canada’s largest trauma centre.  Sunnybrook is the lead site for point-of-care ultrasound training site for the University of Toronto FRCP emergency medicine training program. We have an experienced group of dedicated ultrasound faculty that are leaders in point-of-care ultrasound education.

This fellowship is designed to develop future leaders in emergency point-of-care ultrasound. Major areas of focus include teaching, curriculum development and evaluation, research, and quality assurance. We have six emergency ultrasound machines including two that are dedicated for learners and we have wireless archiving of all scans. Fellows will have many opportunities to teach as we are the lead ultrasound training site for the FRCP core ultrasound rotation as well as the advanced ultrasound elective. We have close partnerships with various subspecialties including cardiology, critical care, and anesthesia which allow for advanced training opportunities.

The fellowship is 12 months in duration. Physicians that will be board-certified with either FRCP-EM or CCFP-EM at the start of their fellowship are eligible to apply. In addition, 4th year FRCP residents are eligible to apply for their subspecialty year.
