USC is pleased to present Christine Pascua, Technical Director, Cardiac Echo Enterprise at
The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, for an informative session on how Sonographers can develop leadership and management skills.
Leadership and management are often desired career paths for diagnostic imagers. With the taxing physical demands of performing ultrasound examinations, many Sonographers seek to advance or alter their career paths in order to create a balance of sustaining a career relevant to ultrasound, to one that will also allow for some reprieve from daily clinical work. This virtual presentation will examine the fundamental skills for diagnostic imagers who are interested in advancing or altering their careers into leadership or management. Participants will gain practical advisement on how to grow leadership competencies within their current roles, as well as tips on how to develop the attitude and aptitude needed to become a successful and effective leader. A comprehensive perspective will make this presentation relevant to interested beginner and experienced leaders in the field. (Approved for 1 SDMS CME credit)
Upon completion of this educational activity, the participant will be able to:
- Describe the fundamental skills needed for leadership and management
- Understand how to actively develop competencies and attitudes
- List and describe non-hospital careers for diagnostic imagers
- List and describe leadership opportunities in clinical lab settings
