ITW at First World Congress

University of Vermont College of Medicine students Brandon Chapman and Gwen Fitz-Gerald attended the First World Congress on Ultrasound in Medical Education in South Carolina April 29 – May 1, 2011. Based on their experience with the ITW team in Uganda last summer, Brandon presented “Incorporating Global Imaging into the Medical Education Curriculum” and Gwen presented “Field Testing a New Method for Obstetric Ultrasound in Uganda”. Together they presented the poster “Global Health Elective during Radiology Residency: An Education Model” authored by UVM/Fletcher Allen Health Care radiology resident, Andria Jones, MD. Co-Founders of ITW, Kristen DeStigter, MD, and Brian Garra, MD, were the supervising radiologists for these three peer-reviewed scholarly projects.
