Clinician Ultrasound

Our Service

UIE offers support and services to clinician’s who are using ultrasound in their current practice. We believe that sound knowledge of scanning techniques is a valuable part of clinical services.  Our workshops, auditing services and on-site training will provide practical solutions within a safe scope of practice.

Wendy Finnie, Echocardiographer and Jill Muirhead, Sonographer have been teaching clinician-performed ultrasound since 2007, and are now able to offer additional training and auditing services. Both Wendy and Jill have over 30 years experience in their fields.

We are pleased to have Dr Scott Bomann back in New Zealand and on our Faculty. He is the former Chair of the ACEM Ultrasound sub-Committee and has numerous publications in the area of Emergency Ultrasound.  Scott is an experienced ultrasound educator and has lectured at various local, regional and international conferences on the topic.
