Welcome to MUSIG’s education page! The McGill Ultrasound Interest Group (MUSIG) is a student-run group that was created to help medical students excel in the practice of ultrasound. We offer frequent training events for students, participate in local and global outreach, and host an annual international ultrasound conference called MTL-SONO.
In the coming weeks, we’ll be posting summary sheets, flashcards, helpful videos, and biweekly quizzes to help you improve your knowledge of theory and improve your ability to interpret scans. Whether you’re a 1st year med student learning about ultrasound for the first time, or a seasoned scanner hoping to hone your skills, we’re here to help you achieve your sono goals!
Follow us on our Facebook Page for more information and for our weekly quizzes!
MTL-SONO 2020 is an amazing two days of webinars by some of the biggest names in POCUS education worldwide! Although COVID-19 has put our hands-on POCUS training on the back burner, it has provided us the opportunity to reach out to instructors from far and wide and the response has been overwhelming! We are very excited to offer live online lectures covering a wide range of topics to help broaden everyone’s POCUS knowledge, from beginner students to more advanced residents and staff. Come learn how to use bedside ultrasound to diagnose a range of pathologies from retinal detachment to shoulder dislocation to COVID-19!
All ticket sales go directly to support student learning and outreach initiatives in point-of- care ultrasound by the undergraduate McGill Ultrasound Interest Group.

Foster inter-university collaboration and knowledge exchange that will lead to improved patient care.
Continue McGill Medicine’s legacy as a leader in ultrasound education and ensure our medical students and residents, as well as those in the region, are exposed to the latest in cutting-edge technology and novel applications within this rapidly advancing field.
Our goal: reach 10,000$.
