Sonography Canada 0

Early Professional Achievement Award

This award celebrates outstanding sonographers who distinguish themselves at the beginning of their careers by demonstrating their leadership, a desire to further their knowledge and skills, and their active participation in the profession.

There is a significant transition period between the status of an ultrasound student and that of an experienced sonographer.

By recognizing their achievements, we want to inspire students and sonographers to become more involved in improving our profession.
