MSK Ultrasound Mini-Fellowship

Experience the transformative power of ultrasound

MSK Ultrasound Mini-Fellowship

Learn the fundamental skills for MSK Ultrasound at an in-person educational course with Dr. Jay Smith, followed by several distance learning sessions over a two week period.

The Mini-Fellowship is an intensive, short-duration training program designed for hand surgeons interested in integrating minimally invasive techniques using ultrasound guidance into their clinical practices.

Our state-of-the-art training lab at The Institute of Advanced Ultrasound Guided Procedures is designed to optimize your learning experience. The central table is connected to monitor stations around the lab where participants will have an unobstructed view of the procedure and the ultrasound imagery guiding it.

An optional, half-day of in-person training will be available to participants upon request. Go beyond the fundamentals and choose up to three additional applications to explore based on your professional interests.
