ASE Pediatric and Congenital Virtual Course Co-Chair Application

ASE Pediatric and Congenital Virtual Course 

Pediatric and Congenital Virtual Course Chairs and Co-Chairs are instrumental to the implementation and eventual success of this virtual program.  They will be assisted and supported by the Pediatric and Congenital Council Virtual Course working group. ASE depends on the Chair and Co-Chair to deliver up-to-date and effective learning methods during this course.

Applications submitted will be reviewed by the ASE Pediatric and Congenital Steering Committee. Recommendations will be made to the ASE Education Committee who will make the final selection.

All Applications must be submitted by February 12, 2024.  Final selections will be announced in March, 2024.

This application process will select the Course Co-Chair for 2024, 2025 and 2026.  Since the Chair/Co-Chair should be a physician and a sonographer, the selections for 2024 & 2026 will be a physician and 2025 will be a sonographer.


The Course Co-Chair is a faculty position with the assumption that they will succeed the Course Chair.  Course Co-Chairs are in place for no more than 1 year.
