ULTRASOUND INTEREST GROUP
ABOUT USIG AT USC SOM
The applications of point of care ultrasound are growing exponentially and we have the opportunity to get ahead of the game with our Ultrasound Institute! USIG is committed to provide extra-curricular experience to all students who are passionate about ultrasound. We are really looking forward to a presentation from Dr. Michael Wagner on the Foundations of Point of Care Ultrasound- you won’t want to miss it! We are also planning on having at least two hands-on ultrasound events each semester. You can learn to do a FAST exam, ultrasound-guided procedures, echocardiograms and much more! We will be providing access to research, independent learning modules on our website as well as many ways to get involved with our leadership team.
USIG Leaders met with Dr. Constantinos Zervides, an Assistant Professor of Medical Physics at the University of Nicosia Medical School in Cyprus. They discussed their partnership and the benefits of incorporating ultrasound into medical education.
USIG Members (Sam Scoma, Jane Lim, Jordan Ohlsson and Miles Reese) participated in a worldwide Hackathon hosted by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organizations (UNESCO), which focused on creating an open, free ultrasound educational piece to be placed in a larger collection of ultrasound education for others around the world.
