The group are pictured with their trophy which they received as the inaugural winners of the National Sonogames Competition. The TUH Emergency Department Team represented Trinity College Dublin and the Hospital in the first national point of care ultrasound competition for medical students. The competition was held in the Mater Hospital in Dublin where medical student teams from the RCSI, UCD, UCC and UCL competed against one another demonstrating their technical skills, ability and knowledge of point of care ultrasound. The TUH Trinity supersonic team trained tirelessly within the team at TUH Emergency Department and were worthy winners of the trophy!
‘Training the students really helps them to learn and achieve competencies that will be so useful when then qualify as doctors. These skills will help them to provide excellence in patient care. It was a pleasure training Trinity Team Supersonic in the TUH ED team.
Very well done to all the teams competing and looking forward to next year already!’ Dr Victoria Meighan, Consultant in Emergency Medicine and Irish Committee for Emergency Medicine Training Ultrasound Lead.
