Emergency Ultrasound Fellowship
Spectrum Health and Emergency Care Specialists

Spectrum Health and Emergency Care Specialists are excited to announce the opening of a one-year emergency ultrasound fellowship in July 2017. Our emergency medicine residency is a post-graduate PGY-1 to PGY-3 program with 27 residents that started in 1977.

We are now accepting applications for the 2018-2019 academic year for ABEM or AOBEM board-certified or board-eligible emergency medicine physicians.

The fellow’s clinical shifts will be scheduled at Spectrum Health Butterworth Hospital and Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital level one adult and pediatric trauma centers, which have a combined annual volume of 150,000 patients.

Our PGY-1 residents have a dedicated ultrasound curriculum covering core ultrasound applications through monthly didactic sessions. In PGY-2, residents perform two two-week dedicated ultrasound rotations.

Spectrum Health has been recognized as a Top 15 Health System (Truven Health, 2014). Our health system is rapidly expanding and includes services such as heart, lung, and bone marrow transplant programs. Our health care community is anchored by its relationships with Van Andel Research Institute, Lemmen-Holton Cancer Pavilion, and Michigan State University – College of Human Medicine, which are built adjacent to Spectrum Health Medical Center on Michigan Street, known locally as the “medical mile.”

Grand Rapids is an amazing community! It has been recognized as the No. 1 city in the U.S. to raise a family (Forbes Magazine, 2012) and the No. 1 city to visit (Lonely Planet, 2014). For craft beer aficionados, it was also recognized as Beer City USA (2012, 2013—2014 vote pending).

Grand Rapids also gained national recognition for ArtPrize, the city’s art competition. It is Michigan’s second largest city, with more than 65,000 college graduate students (Nursing, PA, OT, PT, NP, Law, MBA, MFA, etc.). The area has an abundance of recreational opportunities for a mid-sized city, is located 45 minutes from Lake Michigan, and is just a three-hour drive to Chicago and Detroit.
