We will email you the first week in October to inform you whether you have been accepted into the training program.
Please read the following statement indicating that you are aware of HIPPA regulations and that you will only send de-identified patient ultrasound images to the program website:
"I am aware of, and will comply with the requirement to only transmit ultrasound images of patients that have had all identifying information removed. I understand that failure to remove patient identifiers prior to transmission of ultrasound images would be a violation of HIPPA rules. I am aware that failure to comply with HIPAA can result in civil and criminal penalties (42 USC § 1320d-5)."
Please read the following statements about program participation:
Participation Agreement #1: "I understand that all of the ultrasound images that I upload to USSONAR must have been obtained by me, and that uploading ultrasound images obtained by anyone other than me is sufficient ground for exclusion from the program."
Participation Agreement #2: “I agree to participate in the full educational program including the web-based virtual hands-on workshop and final examination. It is my responsibility to recruit a healthy volunteer to scan all of the joint regions covered in the USSONAR program for both of these sessions, and I will not graduate from the program without this. As part of this process I agree to mail the ultrasound equipment lent to me by insured, overnight mail back to USSONAR on the next business day following completion of use of the equipment.”
Participation Agreement #3: "I understand that I will receive a certificate of completion following the final exam, confirming the number of complete scans I uploaded over the year, but that the exam will not result in any official credentialing in musculoskeletal ultrasound."
I consent to the program sharing my name and email address with a limited number of industry companies as part of the Fundamentals exhibitor program (Leave unchecked if you do not wish for your information to be shared)
