Who are we? About Us
The Association Of Medical Ultrasound Practitioners Of Nigeria, (AMUPN),founded in 2008 is a multidisciplinary medical association of physicians,radiographers, sonographers,nurses, medical and health sciences, students, and other health care providers. AMUPN is committed to advancing the safe and effective use of ultrasound in medicine through professional and public education, research, development of guidelines, and accreditation.
Over the past decades, the AMUPN has achieved these goals through educational, scientific, and professional activities. The success, respect, and credibility that the AMUPN has attained are based on the involvement of all ultrasound professionals, including physicians, sonographers, scientists, engineers, other healthcare providers, and manufacturers of ultrasound equipment. This unique combination of specialists ensures that recommended policies, practice standards, safety procedures, and performance guidelines receive the widest evaluation possible. The AMUPN’s emphasis is on making available to members the most up-to-date and accurate information and skill training so they can make the best use of this imaging modality while ensuring the safety of the patients who depend on them.
The AMUPN has established committees to address the needs of the organization and the educational needs of the profession. Some of these committees are Annual Convention, Bioeffects, Clinical Standards, Constitution, Continuing Medical Education, Educational Resource, Finance, Membership, Patient Resource, Regional Courses, and Technical Standards. Subcommittees and ad hoc committees are created as needed.
Our aims are to:
- Support the work of our members and their colleagues to achieve professional excellence
