The Advanced Primary Care Ultrasound (APCUS) Fellowship has been designed to train primary care physicians to become experts in clinical ultrasound and leaders within the field, it is offered collaboratively with Michigan Medicine's Department of Emergency Medicine.
The APCUS Fellowship will prepare graduates to be directors of clinical ultrasound programs in both academic and community settings, to contribute to research, to teach clinical ultrasound and to get involved on a national and regional level.
Fellows will have the opportunity to complete clinical ultrasound at our Family Medicine clinical sites including the Ypsilanti Health Center, the Chelsea Health Center, and Briarwood Family Medicine, as well as emergency department sites. The fellow will receive teaching from ultrasound faculty in the form of weekly lectures and hands-on scanning, both with faculty and in their continuity clinics.
The APCUS fellow will take an important role in the education of family medicine residents, medical students, ultrasound track residents and interested Family Medicine faculty.
The APCUS fellow will also participate in the intern’s ultrasound boot camp, medical student ultrasound lab and other relevant events in our state of the art Clinical Simulation Center.
