Honor's ultrasound students are the primary coordinator and facilitators for the ultrasound courses described in other places on this website. The elective also consists of journal clubs, monthly didactic sessions, hands-on training, and other online learning opportunities.

Every honor's student has a project that he or she must complete prior to graduation. These projects have resulted in nearly all of the ultrasound education opportunities at OSU, the formation of USIG, various publications, this website, the Ultrasound Challenge, and numerous other educational resources that students will use for years to come.
