Season Greetings from ASUM

Dear ,


It has finally started to rain on the east coast and many are out there doing a happy dance. Our thoughts are with the firies and communities who so desperately needed the wet to help in dousing those raging fires - may the rain continue to assist and provide some much needed relief.


A sincere Thank You to those on the frontline and community supporters who continue to work hard in trying circumstances. Your continued dedication and tireless efforts are greatly appreciated. You are all heroes in our eyes. 


2019 is now a thing of the past. Although we've only just started 2020 things are already shaping up for a busy year ahead. 


We know how important CPD is to our members to ensure you are up-to-date and supported in your ultrasound education and training. This is why ASUM has focused on creating a 2020 CPD program of not-to-be-missed events - with extensive opportunities to continue your professional development, including a new webinar program that will start early March.


For now, if you're interested in learning more in

PoCUS Lung,     Cardiac,    Obstetrics,      Gynaecology,   Ultrasound Physics,      Urogenital   we have an event you could be interested in - see the details below.


New to and still learning about ultrasound? Trainees and students wanting to learn more about ultrasound should consider attending the Clinical Skills Workshop - see the details below.


See you at an event near you!
