An Ultrasound Volunteer (UV) is a person who volunteers to be the subject of educational ultrasounds by medical students, residents, and physicians using ultrasound. The use of UVs helps the learner obtain interpersonal, communication, assessment, physical exam and patient management skills while reviewing anatomy, physiology, and ultrasound imaging techniques. The Ultrasound in Medical Education Program recruits volunteers for various curricular activities and assessments of bedside ultrasound throughout the School of Medicine, UC Irvine Medical Center, and other off-site locations. We focus on training students and physicians to become competent sonologists who can instinctively pilot an ultrasound device, bringing them closer to their patient and their patient's illness at the bedside.
|UVs receive NO compensation for their time
Ideal candidates are motivated,
disciplined, and willing to contribute to medical education. Punctuality and
reliability are imperative.
