This past weekend was an exciting one for Ultrasound at UCI! We put on our 7th annual Ultrafest, with nearly 300 attendees from all over the country. As always, we are humbled to have the opportunity to share these tools we are passionate about, and are excited to see what the future holds for ultrasound technology!

This year, we had strong attendance from UCISOM at the annual WCUME! Ten 2nd year medical students were in attendance, presenting on ultrasound research they had done while on their International Ultrasound trips this past summer, totaling 6 abstracts – 3 from Team Indonesia, 2 from Team Panama, and 1 from Team Tanzania. Emergency Medicine Fellows also presented 2 abstracts at the conference, resulting in a submission of 8 abstracts at the conference from UCI!

Attention all current UCISOM MS1s who are interested in International Ultrasound Education and Research Trips!
This year, the Ultrasound Teams (Team Indonesia, Kenya, Panama, Switzerland, and Tanzania) will be using a common application to make the process of joining a team easier for you all! The app will be due 11/1/17. If you are interested in obtaining access to the application, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We want to give everyone the time to talk with their families, explore other summer plans, and make sure spending a month+ abroad is something they really want to do.
All the groups will be holding additional information sessions individually in the coming month, so please look out for emails from each team that you are interested in joining. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the Ultrasound Interest Group via email!
