Did a proctor just change your life with some cool new mnemonic? Do you think that your TSUP during the scans is exceptional and gave you much pointers about the scans because they have been there forever and knows where the probe should be to get the best window? Or do you think your TSUPs and proctors are just cool and awesome people and you wanna thank them?

Here's your chance! USIG is trying to recognize exceptional Proctors and TSUPs every semester and we need your help to point them out to us! Please fill out this short form and tell us why they are awesome so that they can be recognized!


Thank you to everyone who came out for the UCARE self-scanning session! We are looking forward to many more exciting events and opportunities. While the UCARE application has closed, but interested M1's are encouraged to reach out to Remy Powell for further ways to become involved in ultrasound (
