Brookdale EM Residency

Ultrasound Fellowship

At nearly 100K annual ED visits, Brookdale Hospital holds the designations of level II adult trauma center, PCI-capable STEMI center, thrombectomy capable stroke center, and AIDS center. We have an ACGME accredited three-year EM residency program which our ultrasound fellow is intricately involved with teaching.

Recently we have merged as the One Brooklyn Health system to include two local community hospitals, Interfaith Medical Center and Kingsbrook Jewish Medical Center, which see a combined total of nearly 80K annual ED visits. As our ultrasound fellow, you will have the opportunity to gain experience working clinically at up to all three sites upon request.
