EMUGs has a number of ongoing projects including liaison with and support of ultrasound educators in other developing world countries.
Point of care diagnostic and procedural ultrasound has massive potential benefits in these countries with poor access to other radiological modalities in many areas.
As part of the EMUGs Second Sessions on the 10th Sept we organised fundraising for one of Nepal’s leading Ultrasound educators, Dr Gentle Sunder Shrestha, Critical Care Physician, Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital, Kathmandu.
Our aim is to bring Dr Shrestha to Australia to attend an Advanced course in PoCUS so that he can bring that extra skill-set and knowledge back to those who he teaches in Kathmandu and in rural areas.
Blogs are written by our EMUGs Team from across Australasia.
