“Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning.”   Benjamin Franklin

Fun Fact: Columbus is the state capital located in Franklin County, named after Ben Franklin.

This quote by Ben Franklin embodies much of what is happening in our community of clinical ultrasound with Emergency Medicine and especially SCUF in the lead of this revolution.

We hope you will be able to join us for this exciting conference to discuss the many changes happening within our community and how we can continue to grow and develop our community and ourselves!


“Founded when Abraham Lincoln believed education could lead the nation out of its darkest days, Ohio State now provides a powerful platform of interdisciplinary academic programs, world-class scholars, outstanding students, and extensive research capabilities.”  Gordon Gee
