The Australasian Society for Ultrasound in Medicine (ASUM) are aware that a number of our CCPU supervisors and trainers are currently unable to offer ultrasound training to CCPU trainees due to workload and limitations for non-essential staff due to COVID-19.
ASUM acknowledges and supports this decision to reduce risk where possible and would offer an option to those currently enrolled in CCPU to defer their current training without prejudice.
At this stage we will offer a 3-month deferment with applications for this closing 31 March 2020. We will reassess this evolving situation by 31 May 2020. ASUM will then communicate a decision to extend the deferment period, or any alternative plan offered. During this time, logbook entries will not be considered while deferred from the CCPU program.
