2013: Year of Ultrasound Declaration

Newswise — 2013: Year of Ultrasound (2013YOU) is a campaign designed to promote the widespread integration of ultrasound throughout the entire spectrum of medical school, allied health, and postgraduate medical education. This campaign is organized by the Society of Ultrasound in Medical Education (SUSME) and the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM).

Individuals are encouraged to educate colleagues, inspire students, and share their knowledge of ultrasound throughout the year. Ways to support this mission include activities such as mentor a colleague; encourage the addition of ultrasound into a medical school’s curriculum; publish an article focusing on the use of ultrasound to solve a particular problem; encourage sessions dedicated to ultrasound at specialty society meetings; and post stories about the benefits of using ultrasound in the patient exam or screening.
