Every month our fellows participate in a system-wide ultrasound conference. Each monthly conference begins with didactic lectures and ends with hands-on ultrasound training with live and cadaveric models. Fellows work one on one with registered in musculoskeletal (RMSK) certified sports medicine faculty to review normal anatomy and also to practice interventional procedures. Over the course of the year, each fellow can expect to log well over 200 diagnostic scans and ultrasound guided procedures.
