The Zedu POCUS Scholarship 2020 – the winner
Proudly supported by:
After 5 months, three finalist videos and votes counting in the thousands the Zedu POCUS Scholarship for 2020 has been decided.
We had an amazing response this year, with interest from not only Australia and New Zealand, but around the globe.
The creativity and passion for POCUS training and technology was palpable, and with so many deserving stories we only wish that we could give everyone the opportunity to be part of this program.
However – there could be only one.
So this year’s scholarship – as voted by you – has been awarded to Conor Davis from the Central Australian Retrieval Service. His video capturing the amazing work he is doing in outback Australia struck a chord with the majority of voters.
Conor is an Irish born Emergency Physician with interests in retrieval medicine, ultrasound and paediatric critical care. He has worked in the UK, Malawi, Ireland, New Zealand and completed his training in Melbourne, Australia. He has recently fallen in love with the work and remoteness of The Great Red Centre and now calls Alice Springs home.
Through further training with Zedu, and with a GE system in hand, he plans to spread the POCUS revolution throughout the red centre and ensure it can benefit all Australians.
Congratulations Conor – we all look forward to working with you in 2020 and seeing the difference ultrasound can make to the community you serve.
And thank you to everyone that participated and took the time to vote in this year’s program. Through a simple mouse click you have contributed to the health and welfare of Australians one of the most remote parts of the planet – the ripple effect that this will have will be immeasurable.
