What are your Goals for the AIUM?
My name is David P. Bahner and I have been an ultrasound enthusiast since 1992. Since that time I have seen US use in
medicine grow exponentially and I am enthusiastic about it's potential in the 21st century. I received my M.D from the University of Cincinnati in 1995 and my RDMS in 2000. After attending multiple national and international meetings during the past 20 years I have concluded that there needs to be a more standard ultrasound education for America's health care providers. This is the way that ultrasound can affect our patient’s to improve outcomes and foster their safety.

The American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine can promote ultrasound and increase its membership by continuing as an umbrella organization, promoting competent and quality ultrasound, and moving forward from the strides of the twentieth century toward the challenges of the 21st century. This new century is ready for a new paradigm in regards to ultrasound in medicine. I truly believe that bedside ultrasound can be as indispensible to the 21st century physician as the stethoscope was to those in the 20th. I thank you for your consideration as a nominee to this prestigious organization!
