Testimonials:

"Workshops were great as the groups were so small and we all got time to practice on the simulator as well as a variety of live models. Even though I use ultrasound every day I learned that I still have lots to learn."

"Workshop instructors taught all levels. Although I am inexperienced, they never made me feel inadequate. I will definitely attend again next year."
