Pediatric Emergency Ultrasound Fellowship

The Department of Emergency Medicine and the Divisions of Pediatric Emergency Medicine and Clinical Ultrasound at IU School of Medicine are excited to offer fellowship training in pediatric point of care ultrasound. Each year, our Pediatric Point of Care Ultrasound (POCUS) Fellowship program has one opening for a pediatric emergency physician who has completed a fellowship in pediatric emergency medicine.

Ben Nti, MD, fellowship director, completed his POCUS fellowship in 2018. An avid researcher, Dr. Nti has created a robust training platform for other pediatricians within the pediatric and emergency medicine residency programs.

The fellowship program draws upon the expertise of one of the largest emergency medicine ultrasound divisions in the country. The Department of Emergency Medicine Division of Clinical Ultrasound leads a robust training program for practicing academic and community emergency medicine physicians and pediatric emergency medicine physicians. The division has trained more than 150 physicians within the Department of Emergency Medicine. Division leaders also oversee the curriculum and integration of point of care ultrasound within IU School of Medicine and are actively building a point of care ultrasound training platform for other IU School of Medicine graduate medical education programs.

The majority of training takes place within the Emergency Department at Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health (50,000 visits per year). Other clinical sites include Eskenazi Health (100,000 visits per year) and IU Health Methodist Hospital (95,000 visits per year), which serve both pediatric and adult patients.

The department also has an Emergency Ultrasound Fellowship program that takes up to two candidates each year. Both the Pediatric POCUS Fellowship and the Emergency Ultrasound Fellowship program are part of the Society of Clinical Ultrasound Fellowship and use the society's application process and the associated NRMP match as the sole method for application to the program. For more information about our program, visit the Society of Clinical Ultrasound Fellowship or e-mail Dr. Ben Nti at bnti@iupui.edu.

Facilities

The IU School of Medicine Department of Emergency Medicine staffs 10 emergency departments across the state of Indiana, including Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health. The department has a combined pediatric and emergency medicine residency, as well as a Pediatric Emergency Medicine Fellowship program. Faculty who work at Riley Hospital at IU Health have either received pediatric and emergency medicine residency training or have completed a pediatric emergency medicine fellowship program.

The majority of clinical scanning takes place in the emergency department at Riley Hospital at IU Health; however, additional hands-on training occurs at one of three additional sites:

  • Sidney & Lois Eskenazi Health: County hospital and Level 1 Trauma Center (100,000 visits per year)
  • IU Health Methodist Hospital: Flagship hospital of the Indiana University Health system and Level 1 Trauma Center (95,000 visits per year)
