What have you missed and what’s coming?


The month of July was a busy month for CPD Events at ASUM… 


We had a good turnout for the Perth Vascular Workshop. Thank you to presenters James Macko, Dr Nish Altaf, Dr Patrik Tosenovsky and Kelly Kinder who supported James in the live scanning sessions. Here is what some of the registrants had to say…


“It was an excellent informative seminar”

“The talks from all the speakers were very interesting and of good standard”

“The presentations from the vascular surgeons were very informative”

“Well done to the organisers”


Sydney and Perth’s Clinical Educators’ Course were well received. Thank you, Delwyn Nichols for sharing your expertise and piloting the virtual classroom. Feedback about what delegates liked the most included:


“It really gave a great direction how to train students. I like that we have been given all forms to be able to use”

“It was a great topic to cover as there is not much information about teaching in ultrasound. The presenter was very knowledgeable & inspiring”

“The dynamic, engaging nature of the presenter and her willingness to share personal insight and “pearls of wisdom” that were highly relevant and beneficial for getting core messages pertaining to the subject matter across to the group”

“Learning methods to manage/teach different types of learners as well as under-performance issues”
