What’s New in USIG - UltraFest Recap

The 5th Annual UltraFest was our biggest yet!

- 218 participants and volunteers

- 42 ultrasound machines donated

- 12 medical schools represented from 4 different states

If you participated in UltraFest please take a minute to tell us about your experience at the following link, https://goo.gl/forms/0WaHhLzcslciv7hi1

The event would not have been a success without our donors here at OSUCOM including the Alumni Organization, IPC, Student Council, and the Emergency Medicine Department. Additionally, ​42 ultrasound machines were lent to the Ultrasound Interest Group from Sonosite, GE, Sonosim, Phillips, Mindray, Clarius, Butterfly, and our very own CSEAC. A huge thank you to the faculty and donors that helped make this day a success!

Finally, thank you to our TSUPs and Proctors!! UltraFest would not be possible without you. Please take a minute to fill out the survey found at the link, https://goo.gl/forms/WXJNQKWDEJBtQ44F3

We're already looking forward to seeing all of you back next fall for our 6th Annual UltraFest!
