On February 26, 2022, Midwestern University hosted another successful UltraFest!

Led by AZCOM’s Ultrasound Interest Group, this student-driven event is an educational ultrasound symposium where healthcare students and physicians from all over Arizona come together to further their knowledge of and appreciation for sonography. The mission behind UltraFest is to encourage student healthcare professionals to become comfortable utilizing point-of-care ultrasound, a cost-effective yet informative diagnostic tool, in clinical practice.

More than 150 students from across multiple disciplines were in attendance, along with 6 MWU faculty, 5 Certified Registered Nurse Anesthesiologists, 4 attending physicians, and 1 resident from around Maricopa County. Throughout the day, field experts hosted various ultrasound workshops, covering everything from using sonography in trauma to foot and ankle pathology. At the end of the day, Midwestern students assembled into teams of four to compete in SONOWARS – a scanning competition where teams compete in different ultrasound themed activities for points and prizes.

Ultrasound Interest Group faculty advisor, Charles Finch, D.O., FACOEP, said of the 2022 event, “This is an impressive showing of leadership, education, and collaboration in a multidisciplinary fashion impacting students, faculty, patients, and our community.”
