Ultrasound training for internal medicine and family medicine

The Prisma Health/University of South Carolina School of Medicine Columbia Internal Medicine and Family Medicine Ultrasound Fellowship Program is a year-long training program in point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) for physicians interested in learning and teaching the acquisition, interpretation and application of medical ultrasound technology at the point-of-care. 

Fellows receive:

  • POCUS training from national leaders from various specialties and subspecialties in a range of clinical settings spanning ambulatory, hospitalist and critical care medicine.
  • Access to state-of-the-art ultrasound equipment (including a variety of handheld ultrasound units), ultrasound learning material and ultrasound simulation.
  • Career mentorship, faculty development training and networking opportunities with other national POCUS leaders.
  • Competitive compensation and benefits, academic mentorship and training in education and research.

In general, the fellowship accepts 1–2 fellows per academic year for an internal medicine POCUS track, and one fellow per year for the family medicine track.
