Teaching Ultrasound at the California School of the Deaf in Riverside!

UCI has had the incredible opportunity to teach ultrasound to the bright high school students over at the California School of the Deaf in Riverside. Thank you to Dr. Fischetti for spearheading the effort! Over the past 3 months, we taught POCUS basics on our portable Butterfly Ultrasounds, from viewing new bone breaks to PSL views of the heart to full bladders!  On our final session today, we also video chatted in a Deaf Physician specializing in Radiology to speak to the students about her journey. Most importantly, we wanted to relay to young students that no matter their background, a career in medicine is always within reach, and that there are many different ways to enter it, whether it be as a future Ultrasound Tech, a Mortician, or Doctor.
