Education. Innovation. Experience.

We are the primary teaching site of the Yale University School of Medicine and see over 100,000 emergency department patients annually. We established our Ultrasound Division in 2002 and started our Emergency Ultrasound Fellowship in 2003. Since 2011, we have been recognized as the Emergency Ultrasound Section of the Yale Department of Emergency Medicine.

Yale is an excellent environment for teaching and research, offering immense opportunities for collaboration. Our diverse patient population as a Level 1 trauma center and cancer center includes plentiful blunt and penetrating injury, pulmonary emboli, cardiac pathologies, oncological challenges, ectopic pregnancies and much more! We constantly rely upon ultrasound to make timely clinical decisions, and our faculty and residents are very knowledgeable in point-of-care applications.


We employ a vast array of machines including Philips, Zonare, Sonosite, GE compact ultrasounds and GE VScans. We use the most up-to-date equipment and are informed about the newest technological advances.

    The Yale University Department of Emergency Medicine invites you to join our experts in Emergency and Critical Care ultrasound to help you learn or enhance your point-of-care ultrasound skills. This is the 13th year that we will be gathering experts from New England, New Jersey and New York to teach a comprehensive point-of-care ultrasound course, hosted in the heart of New England.

  • We focus on ultrasound education from the time our residents enter their intern year. Starting off with a pre-internship orientation course, we build on establishing solid core knowledge during a one-month rotation in the PGY-1 year.
