This year we are excited to have Dr. Ric Solis and Dr. Robert Broughton as our ultrasound fellows.
I graduated from VCOM, VA campus in 2012 and completed EM residency at AU in 2015. I have been serving out my Army commitment at Ft. Benning, in Columbus, GA for the past four years. While there, I served as emergency department medical director as well as medical director for fire, EMS, and air ambulance services at Ft. Benning. I also became intimately involved in efforts to improve the prevention and management of severe exertional heat stroke and other heat related injuries. I now have the opportunity to return to AU as the first emergency medicine critical care and ultrasound fellow.
I graduated from medical school at Augusta University and completed my pediatric residency at Emory University. I returned to Augusta to complete a 3 year Pediatric Emergency Medicine Fellowship. My interest include integrating POCUS into my clinical practice in the pediatric emergency room and look forward to enhancing my ultrasound skills for patient care and teaching residents and medical students.
One fellow is accepted per academic year (beginning in July). Applications are accepted on a rolling basis throughout the year until the position is filled. Interviews are granted upon receipt and review of the applications. There is no formal application form, but you will need to submit a CV, cover letter, and letters of recommendation.
