Volunteer Sessions (Student Labs) for Spring 2015
Who can volunteer? Anyone who is willing to assist the Sonography student's with their education and training. You are the "patient" for the session!
Volunteer sessions are 1 hour in length. All volunteers are scanned by experienced, credentialed faculty members as well as a student or students who are in various stages of their sonography education.
When you arrive for your Volunteer Session, you will complete highlighted portions of your Sonography Waiver form. At the end of your session you will receive the yellow copy of the Waiver form. You should retain your copy of the Waiver form for documentation for extra credit and/or for your Application Packet if you plan to apply to a Sonography Program.
Sonography student labs are non-diagnostic; the scans are not "read" by a physician.*
