The 4-week rotation gives you a chance to rotate in our busy tertiary care Emergency Department and get hands on experience with POCUS.  You will rotate alongside emergency medicine residents, ultrasound fellows and the divisional faculty. 
Along with hands on scanning, you will get didactics weekly from the fellows and divisional faculty. You will also get one on one hands on teaching from the Ultrasound fellows.  You will participate in image review with different divisional faculty weekly.  This rotation is an excellent way to enhance your POCUS skills and improve your clinical skills.
