Scenario Author

​​​​​​​​​​​​​Use your experience and imagination to play a significant role in the future of your profession.  

Create realistic Point-of-Care (POC) ultrasound scenarios around a set of specific evaluation objectives that were developed by a team of subject-matter-experts (Template Developers).  Using a survey-based methodology, you will identify appropriate responses at critical-decision points during the patient encounter. Your scenarios should detail medical encounters that a POC practitioner might experience on a daily basis, including setting and patient characteristics. 

If possible, we encourage Scenario Authors to incorporate their own high-quality, content-specific POC images and videos into their scripts and transfer all publishing rights to ARDMS.
