OUR VISION

We are a multidisciplinary group of healthcare professionals and Jesus followers who have a passion for using and teaching ultrasound, with the goal of equipping Christian international healthcare workers to incorporate ultrasound into their practice of medicine in the most challenging of settings.

 

OUR MISSION

Taking our plans to the throne: Our only hope of success is through prayer. “The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps” (Proverbs 16:9, ESV).

Bringing glory to Christ: Marveling at this creative power in the human body.

Removing obstacles to training: Traditional ultrasound courses are very long and expensive, or they are too short and too focused on entertainment. We have lots of fun working hard together. We keep costs to a minimum to get the training done.

Provide high intensity Point of Care Ultrasound training: Through jam-packed days of focused didactics, very small groups, affordable high quality tablet based ultrasound technology and cutting edge (creative) uses of ultrasound, we start the transformation process of making ultrasound a seamless part of the initial physical exam and medical decision making.

Make it personal: Our courses are learner-goal-directed. We survey the applicants and tailor a course to their individual experience and needs in their projected international setting. No two courses should ever be the same.

Get creative: In special circumstances, if the need arises for a full-time missionary/healthcare professionals to receive more training than can be provided in one of our intensive courses, we will strive to place the learner one-on-one with one of our clinical faculty in the U.S. (or abroad) or in a external ultrasound training course for more long-term training.

OUR STATEMENT OF FAITH

  2. In the eternal God revealed in Holy Scripture as Father, Son and Holy Spirit;
  3. In the unique Deity of Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, whose death and resurrection provide by grace through faith the only means of my salvation;
