To provide ultrasound continuing education opportunities so sonographers and sonologists can gain relevant and required skills to maintain and improve their proficiency level.
Aprende Canada started in March 2013 to offer another opportunity for continuing education for sonographers and sonologists.
It started as on-site training to now include worldwide online activities.
Leonardo Faundez is a registered Canadian diagnostic medical generalist and vascular sonographer with 20 years of experience in large and small healthcare facilities.
His studies include a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology, a Bachelor of Adult Education degree, a Nuclear Medicine diploma, an Ultrasound diploma, a certificate on Supplemental Instruction, and a Master degree in Adult Education.
In his 10+ years of experience in adult education, he has taught and trained sonography students, radiology residents, radiology fellows, and other health care professionals in a variety of learning environments. In addition, he gained considerable experience in curriculum design and curriculum development, as well as in the creation of simulation training activities and innovative instructional tools, such as the creation of a scrotal ultrasound phantom.
He has presented at Canadian and American conferences presenting different topics in the sonography field. Furthermore, his articles on how to create a scrotal phantom was published in the Canadian Journal of Medical Sonography (CJMS) in 2011. At least one American and two Canadian schools have already implemented this idea as part of their curricula.
Leonardo is passionate about education and finding creative ways to help learners succeed.
