The Point of Care Revolution; Ultrasound | Chris Fox | TEDxUCIrvine
Dr. Fox gives an overview to the future of point of care with the use of ultrasound.
Several UCI students attended and presented research at the World Congress on Ultrasound in Medical Education on October 10-12, 2014 in Portland, Oregon. Students presented over a dozen studies from international ultrasound projects, and well as several other ultrasound education studies. We had a fantastic time at the conference hearing innovative and inspiring talks from faculty , attending hands-on workshops, as well as meeting leaders in the field and fellow medical student ultrasound enthusiasts. Some of our UCI USIG members enjoyed the opportunity to participate in the First Ultrasound World Cup, forming the UCI Sonobabes and Bronography teams. A special thanks the organizers at OHSU for an incredible experience!
