Ultrasound Models

We are seeking 12 adults to be model patients during 5 hands-on ultrasound workshops at AAEM23! The ultrasound models allow these live courses to provide hands-on ultrasound skill training for physicians to learn the basics, understand scan proficiency, and cover focused medical scans of vascular, abdominal, echocardiography (heart), and musculoskeletal (leg/arm) areas.

This opportunity is a rewarding benefit for college or medical students interested in the medical field (future physicians, medical assistants, nurses, physical therapists, and/or other medical specialties) to learn about the human body, earn easy extra cash, and network with physicians from throughout the globe.
