Emerging Echo Enthusiasts (E3)

Starting out in your echo career can be scary and challenging: you are now expected to find a job, apply what you’ve learned, and be an expert in echocardiography. In this moment, you may want to connect with others going through similar experiences and the Emerging Echo Enthusiast (E3) specialty interest group allows just that!

E3 is an ASE specialty interest group for early career physicians, sonographers, and fellows/sonography students who practice echocardiography. Our goal is to provide the new generation of echocardiographers with resources for career development, clinical education, and research collaboration. Our current projects include tutorials showing practical “tricks of the trade,” online forums on how to approach the job search and much more!
