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 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)
- IU Simulation Center at Fairbanks Hall: A state-of-the-art simulation center that houses multiple ultrasound simulators
All Department of Emergency Medicine Division of Clinical Ultrasound faculty are actively involved in training fellows.
