Rural Echo

Regional and rural physicians are improving patient care by integrating clinician performed ultrasound (CPU) into rural practice. Several regional and rural sites now have point of care machines in place and their clinicians are presently undertaking their apprenticeships to achieve credentials through CEUS.

This great work and initiative also aligns well with our College’s distributed learning model. In fact, rural and regional physicians are now poised to lead the way in clinical integration of ultrasound for medical students and residents (see more about this here: http://words.usask.ca/usaskmeddean/2014/09/15/why-distributed-medical-education/

With the number of sites with credentialed physicians growing every year, Sasksonic hopes to facilitate the development of a province-wide CPU network focused on quality and collaboration.
