The Emergency Medicine (EM) Ultrasound program was originally started in 2008 as a two-day course designed for all FEP clincians working in all 10 of our Florida Hospital Emergency Departments (ED). Next, the program became an integral part of the EM residency program, helping EM Residents obtain knowledge, skill and experience to make US an integral part of improving patient care in the ED.
