Point-of-care Ultrasound in Resource-Limited Settings (PURLS) Fellowship

Point-of-care Ultrasound in Resource-Limited Settings (PURLS) Fellowship

The Point-of-care Ultrasound in Resource-Limited Settings (PURLS) fellowship equips emergency physicians with the clinical, logistical, and point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) expertise necessary to practice and educate in the unique environment of resource-limited settings, where tropical diseases and lack of advanced diagnostic imaging and subspecialty support present significant challenges.

Fellows will work closely with faculty in both the Offices of Global Health and Emergency Ultrasound in the UAB Department of Emergency Medicine, as well as local institutions and clinicians, to integrate the advanced imaging skills obtained in typical United States-based Emergency Ultrasound fellowships with the expertise in tropical infectious diseases, epidemiology, and context-appropriate clinical practice obtained in a Global Health fellowship. Fellows will also develop expertise in POCUS education in order to train local clinicians in its use, with the goal of increasing access to diagnostic imaging and improving patient care in settings where it is needed most.
