The Emergency Ultrasound Division at Kaiser San Diego oversees point of care ultrasound for the Department of Emergency Medicine, ultrasound education for the KPSD EM residency and the KPSD Emergency Ultrasound fellowship. We provide routine training of residents and faculty as well as periodic courses in ultrasound guided IV training for nursing. Additionally, we have provided training to other departments outside the ED including internal medicine, nephrology and family medicine and at other facilities outside of KPSD.
