Lauren Ann Selame, MD is an Emergency Medicine physician practicing as clinical Ultrasound Faculty at Brigham and Women’s Hospital with additional affiliations at Faulkner Hospital and Massachusetts General Hospital. She completed her Medical Degree at Sidney Kimmel Medical College at Thomas Jefferson University, specialty training in Emergency Medicine at Thomas Jefferson University Hospitals in 2020, and Emergency Ultrasound Fellowship at Massachusetts General Hospital in 2021. She holds academic roles as the Director of Ultrasound Education at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and the Assistant Fellowship Director and Site-Director to the Harvard Emergency Ultrasound Fellowship at Mass General Brigham.

Through her SAEMF project “Tele-ultrasound Instruction in the Performance of Sonography” (TIPS) she aims to symbiotically enhance education and wellness by facilitating the processes of educating, learning, providing quality patient care, and monitoring clinician wellness in the Emergency Department. Through this project emergency medicine residents, fellows, advance practice practitioners and faculty will be paired with emergency ultrasound experts who will teach them diagnostic and procedural point-of care ultrasound (POCUS) via a hands-on virtual platform, TIPS. Satisfaction and competency outcomes will be monitored with the hypothesis that TIPS can improve learner and educator satisfaction and ultrasound competency.
