I'm a retired pathologist now teaching gross anatomy to PA students in a small rural university. I've been learning ultrasound from scratch on my own. This course was very helpful and at an appropriate level for developing a syllabus for the PA students. Thanks so much.
I am a veterinarian and we are purchasing an ultasound machine for our small animal practice. I have 2 younger colleagues who are familiar with it but I needed to have an introduction and this course was excellent for what I needed to learn! Thank you! Now I can keep up with my young Dr's! :)
