Inteleos Foundation Scholar 2023

The scholarship to receive ARDMS certification will give me credible recognition as a healthcare provider, both in my country and globally. Recently, there has been an acute shortage of radiologists and sonographers, which leaves the teeming population at the mercy of healthcare professionals who may have knowledge of sonography, but do not have a credential to support it. Some unsuspecting patients may not be aware of the fact that they are being attended to by someone who is not credentialed, while others will refuse being attended to by such individual. With a scholarship to achieve the ARDMS certification, my patients would have full confidence in my abilities.

One of the biggest constraints to getting credentialled, especially in Nigeria where the value of the Naira is plummeting against the dollar, is financial. It isan uphill task gathering funds to take the certification exams. That is why the scholarship is so important for community health workers around the world.

So far, with my ultrasound education, I have been able to teach my junior residents some skills which have come in handy in emergency situations.

I am so excited to receive a scholarship and get certified by the ARDMS because it gives me a sense of belonging and recognition by a foremost sonography certification body.
