Dr. MacLong Tran joined UT Southwestern in July of 2008 to be the director of the Section of EM Ultrasound with the mission of creating a robust and innovative Emergency Medicine Ultrasound Program for the UTSW EM Residency as well as create a UTSW EM Ultrasound Fellowship.  Today 19 trainees per year rotate through and learn the core applications of Clinical and Point-of-Care Ultrasound techniques, taught by EM Ultrasound Fellowship Trained Physicians.  Finally in July 2011 the EM Ultrasound Fellowship at Parkland Hospital with UTSW faculty appointment was finally established and has since graduated many great EM Ultrasound experts!
