SonoSite forms African ultrasound training program

Handheld-ultrasound firm SonoSite has partnered with the African Institute of Innovation and Technology (AIIT) in Kenya to establish an ultrasound education program at Great Lakes University of Kisumu.

The AIIT ultrasound program aims to provide physicians, midwives, and clinical workers with greater access to ultrasound education, training, and medical resources to improve the health and welfare of the people in the region, SonoSite said.

More than 100 clinical officers, midwives, and physicians have already attended the first ultrasound training courses at Great Lakes University, according to SonoSite. The program is led by AIIT co-founder Dr. Thomas Burke, who also serves as chief of the division of global health and human rights in the department of emergency medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital.
