As the planning for Castlefest 2016 is well underway, we wanted to go ahead and let you all know how you can get involved. As many of you are already aware, Castlefest is a 4 day Ultrasound Event hosted by our very own Dr. Matt Dawson as well as some of the best Ultrasound educators from around the world. This event is designed to be an Ultrasound training boot camp in which physicians fly in from all over to learn Ultrasound from the best. We are extremely fortunate in that this occurs right here in our backyard at the Castle in Versailles, KY.  
If you have ever wanted to get more involved with USIG or simply just want to learn more about ultrasound itself, there is no better opportunity than this. We will be sending out sign-up sheets in the coming weeks for about 30-40 volunteers per day to serve as ultrasound “models” so that all of these physicians can practice hands on scanning with live models. As a model you will get to attend the event free for the day, can attend all of the lectures, and eat a free lunch with the best of the best. Check out the google doc below to sign up, and be sure to sign up early as volunteer spots filled quickly last year! Sign Ups:
