Hello Sir:
Tried to get back to you today but ran out of time. Also still trying to go through your links and gather some more information. I spoke to our Assistant OMD and asked him if our OMD is still interested in the Advanced/Master Medic Program and use of Ultrasound. Sounds like the Master Medic program is in the process, and as a side note he is sponsoring an Ultrasound fellowship in the ER. In any case, the A-OMD with speak with the ODM in the next few days. I would like to get up with you and discuss what would need to be done for us to start a similar program. Thanks again.
Tom Sasso
