The AIUM is launching an initiative to help medical students and medical schools throughout the country by creating a network of mentors. The purpose of this survey is to identify ultrasound experts, your interests and to quantify the number of hours you are willing to volunteer.

Please complete the short survey below. Thank you for your time and we hope that you will consider participating in this initiative.

* 3. Would you be willing to serve as a mentor for medical students or residents?
