Models Needed for Ultrasound Course

The Drumheller Associated Physicians are looking for Volunteers to participate in an Emergency Department Echo (Ultrasound) course that the Physicians in Drumheller are taking here at the Drumheller Health Centre October 5 & 6, and November 2 & 3.

Everyone is welcome and can come for multiple days if willing. Blanket criteria for males and female participants are as follows:

Must be over 16, not Menopausal, and not have had a Hysterectomy.

Must be over 16 years, and need to be comfortable being shirtless.

What will happen during this course: As one of the healthy volunteers, you will show the doctors what a normal person looks like ( on the inside) so that they can recognize the abnormal pictures more quickly.  While you are with us, the doctors will put an ultrasound probe on your tummy and move it around. THIS WILL NOT HURT AND IT IS NOT DANGEROUS. It can get a little gooey, though, as we have to use a special kind of gel to make contact between the probe and your skin.

  • On October 5 we will need 15 Females available 12:15pm-4:50pm and 15 Males available 8:00am -11:45am on this day these models would need to be on the thin to average size as this helps to see the anatomy clearly and quickly.
  • On October 6 times required for models to be available is either at 8:00am, 10:00am, 1:00pm, or 3:00pm. Each time will have a group consisting of 8 models. Each group will need to be available for 2 hours. On this day models of any stature are welcome.
  • November 2 we are in need of 26 Females and 6 Males and November 3 we will need 10 females and 2 males (times required for these days to be confirmed).

Please note that there is a fair amount of dead time when other people are being scanned, so you should bring a book or other entertainment.

Your participation is very important and we appreciate very much your taking the time to help us.

Proof of participation will be given which participants may use on resumes and towards volunteer hours.  RN and LPN’s can participate as auditors and will be given a certificate which can be used for their yearly education allotment.

We ask that anyone interested in participating to please contact the Drumheller Associated Physicians Business Manager, Sunday Welsh at 403-823-3345 ext. 310 or to be given all the information required for the event during the clinic hours 8:30 to 5:00 Monday to Friday.   This is open to anyone to participate.
