Welcome! This is the website for the Mount Sinai Emergency Ultrasound Division. It serves as an information resource for residents, fellows, medical students, and others seeking information about point-of-care ultrasound. The ultrasound division exists to support our clinicians in caring for patients. Our program has several unique features. First, we care for a diverse population of patients in the greatest city in the world, alongside an amazing group of residents and faculty. Next, we have excellent relationships with other departments, allowing for clinical experiences in transesophageal echocardiography, Cardiology, Radiology, etc. We have a full-time sonographer working in our department, who plays an important role in operations, education, and research. We have many dedicated ultrasound division faculty with enormous experience and dedication to education, including two faculty members at the full professor rank. Our faculty have lectured around the world and held leadership positions in national and international ultrasound organizations.
