I can think of countless instances where the right training with the right tool, in this case, a simple ultrasound could have significantly improved patient care.

Building on a solid foundation of training in ultrasound knowledge and technique during my residency, I intend to continue to hone and expand this ability as a post-graduate emergency medicine physician. As a potential Ultrasound Fellow, I am enthusiastic to have the opportunity to continue to challenge myself under the guidance of the fellowship staff. This training ensures refinement of the knowledge I have already gained and offers valuable opportunity to develop and invest my time in research in this academic environment.

The clinical training I will gain as an Ultrasound fellow will be an invaluable asset in my continued career as an Army physician, both in the garrison and deployed application. Through practical application and by training others, it will ensure I am properly prepared to treat and assist my fellow physicians and soldiers. I appreciate the opportunity to serve as an Army physician and look forward with excitement to continuing this service through training as an EM Ultrasound
