We’re looking for feedback
ASUM have been advocating for funding of clinical training positions for sonographers. We now seek your feedback on the two programs currently in operation for support of sonographer funding as outlined in the letter from The Hon Greg Hunt MP.
Were you aware of these programs and how will they support you and your business in supporting clinical training positions for sonographers?
Please feel free to contact our CEO via the office, or email your response to firstname.lastname@example.org
