Embracing a Blended Learning Approach to Ultrasound Integration
Blended learning is an emerging paradigm that “combines face-to-face instruction with computer mediated instruction” (Bonk & Graham). A blended learning approach to ultrasound education, training, and assessment is helping medical education programs successfully integrate ultrasound into medical student, resident, and faculty training. SonoSim has created a suite of complementary products and services for medical education programs interested in using a blended learning, or “flipped-classroom”, approach for ultrasound integration into their curriculum.

SonoSim Abroad in Asia
The SonoSim International Team made a two-week journey through Asia this fall meeting with distribution partners and key customers in various markets. The most significant stops included Hangzhou, China and Tokyo, Japan. In Japan, the team met with emergency medicine and critical care physicians who currently use SonoSim with residents and medical students. Dr. Takamitsu Kodama with Aichi Medical University Hospital has integrated SonoSim into the offerings at the hospital’s simulation center. He finds the product to be a great tool for teaching ultrasound.
