Volunteers play a vital role at AIU

With your help, ‘real patient’ ultrasound training is made possible for our students and together we are helping the next generation of doctors reach the highest standards of patient care and outcomes.

To assist our training, we generally require up to 100 ultrasound volunteers each week.

Our volunteers are always treated with courtesy and respect. We are always grateful for the time and assistance we receive from our volunteers and believe that our friendly staff and relaxed environment ensure that our volunteers look forward to visiting AIU – again and again.

What do we scan?

  • Heart, Abdomen, Gallbladder, Liver, Kidneys
  • Arteries, Veins
  • Pelvis, Uterus, Prostate, Bladder
  • Breast, Thyroid
  • Muscles, Joints
  • Pregnancy (all stages)

In other words… most parts of the body!

It’s always a pleasure to visit AIU – so much so that I’ve visited over 600 times now over the last 20 years! I stop in for a coffee, chat to the wonderful staff, help the doctors learn and I learn a bit myself along the way. Having such regular scans means anything that shows up is highlighted early to my doctor too.”
