The University of British Columbia Department of Emergency Medicine Point of Care Ultrasound (POCUS) Fellowship Program aims to develop future leaders in POCUS both in urban and rural communities across Canada.

POCUS is now a core competency for both emergency medicine training and practice. This fellowship is a 9-month curriculum designed to train emergency physicians to be leaders in point of care ultrasound in Canada. Fellows will develop expertise in sonography, teaching, research, and administration.


Vancouver is a world-class multicultural city consistently rated as one of the best places to live in the world. Vancouver combines amazing culture and food with an outdoor wonderland. Vancouverites really can ski in the morning and hit the beach in the afternoon. To top it off, Whistler is a scenic 1½-hour drive away for world-class skiing/snowboarding and mountain biking.


UBC offers two separate streams within the POCUS fellowship:

VGH & RCH Stream
