I have some great news for you all – well those of you who live in Australia anyway. The use of bedside ultrasound has revolutionised the way I practice over the last 10 years. Sonography allows us to provide faster, safer and more timely care. This is especially true in remote and rural locations where access to formal imaging and surgical services can be tough to come by. However, to become proficient in the use of US requires not just a few weekend courses. You need a mentor and regular feedback. Somebody to bounce ideas off and learn how to integrate sonography into your practice.
My friends at Ultrasound Training Solutions in Melbourne have created a scholarship opportunity for rural clinicians form anywhere in Australia. It is called… the UTS – GE Healthcare Rural and Remote Ultrasound Scholarship.
So what is this scholarship going to do for you?
- A free UTS course – run by the team at UTS who offer high quality, hands-on US training in their Sonocave down in Melbourne. I’ve been there, it is a great team and excellent educational package.
- Travel and Accomodation – to Melbourne from anywhere in Oz
- Ongoing mentorship including TEN sessions with the UTS mentors to keep your new skills sharp and tight.
- A year to play with a GE Dual-probe Vscan system – worth $9000!
This is exactly what you need to get on the road to sonomastery, or take you skills to the next level.
So don’t just sit there, get onto it. Applications are open for this unique educational package. Go over to the UTS website and download the details and get onto your application. You have until October 21st to get it in and then cross you fingers. You could be winning this package worth about $15K.
