Nova Southeastern University PA Program, Orlando
Student Ultrasound Interest Section
The students of Nova Southeastern University PA Program, Orlando, are an amazing group of clinicians. Led by first year PA student Miranda Ghali, the students were first exposed to ultrasound when 22 of them participated in the 2017 AIUM SonoSlam competition in Orlando.
The students created their own SUIS, where all 62 students in the class of 2018 joined. Miranda was able to successfully lobby her program to support the request for ultrasound machines. With the support of the program and the class mentor were able to hold several workshops over the Spring and Summer of 2017. The students in the SUIS then created to the first ever ultrasound competition for PA students named the Shark SonoSlam.
