Faculty Spotlight 2020 May/June

Aalap Shah, MD 

Aalap Shah is a young faculty member to watch. He has recently completed fellowship in the spring of this year at the Medical University of South Carolina and was recently appointed as Assistant Professor in the MUSC Department of Emergency Medicine and he lives in Charleston with his wife and two kids. He has recently joined the AEUS leadership to promote scholarship in emergency ultrasound via the AEUS social media committee. I also received the EMF/ ACEP teaching fellowship scholarship award in 2019 and plan to complete the course in 2020. He has been developing web-based asynchronous educational content and a video series to supplement the resident intern curriculum and transform it into a more longitudinal experience. We are looking forward to what the rest of his career will bring!



Resident Spotlight  March/April 2020

Phong Huynh, MD

Dr. Phong Huynh is a PGY-3 resident at New York-Presbyterian Emergency Medicine Residency with an enthusiasm for point-of-care ultrasound. He was tasked to formulate an education conference day based on a focused theme and chose the utilization of point-of-care ultrasound in critical patients. Phong coordinated efforts with ultrasound and simulation faculty to create a dynamic hands-on learning experience for learners of varying stages. The whole day was gamified to illicit the inherent competitive spirit to enhance learning. Residents who returned to their clinical shifts after the learning session actually incorporated the learning objectives which translated to saving the life of a patient with massive pulmonary embolism.
