My organization, IntraHealth, is a global non-profit that specializes in training health workers. We have been asked to train ultrasound techs in Kenya. There is a real shortage of ultrasound techs throughout Africa and it is severely limiting access to ultrasonography.
There currently is no national curricula for ultrasound techs in Kenya and we haven’t been able to access an ultrasound tech curriculum. We are looking for a complete curriculum in English for pre-service education of ultrasound techs. We’re willing to take a look at any curricula you can share, but ideally we would like a course list, class outlines and schedules, teachers’ notes, slides, handouts, student reading, homework, exams, and recommended textbooks. It is preferable if the curricula is from North America or Europe but any curricula that is accredited by its national regulatory body will be accepted.
