BURNABY, B.C., Sept. 19, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Clarius Mobile Health announced the recipients for the Medical School

Award (MSA) over the weekend, due to the cancellation of this year's World Congress of Ultrasound in Medical Education (WCUME). The program received around 100 registrations and 4 applicants were selected. The Platinum Awards have been granted to SUNY Downstate College of Medicine in Brooklyn, New York and University of California in San Diego, California. The Gold Awards have been granted to Ohio State University College of Medicine in Columbus, Ohio and Sidney Kimmel Medical College at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In total, over $250,000 worth of Clarius equipment will be delivered to these 4 medical schools.

Clarius started its MSA award program to support the use of handheld ultrasound in medical schools. "We recognize the value of introducing ultrasound technology early in the medical curriculum and are excited to support ultrasound education programs with our technology," said Laurent Pelissier, Chairman and CEO of Clarius. All the applicants showed great dedication in advancing the future of medical education. Applicants indicated that Clarius scanners would bridge the gap between the first-year anatomical studies and the fourth-year clinical bedside experience. They also noted that Clarius Cloud, an online exam management portal, would help facilitate student learning.

"We had overwhelming interest for our MSA program and were impressed with the quality of the applications," said Brad Nichol, Director of Medical School Sales at Clarius. "After a rigorous evaluation process in collaboration with an independent group of physicians, we would like to thank all applicants for the amount of thought and effort put into each and every application."

Clarius is dedicated to help overcome some of the shortcomings faced in these medical schools today. "The biggest challenge we face with the current curriculum is a drastically inappropriate student to transducer ratio," according to SUNY Downstate College of Medicine. "Ultrasound will literally bring students to the bedside," an excerpt from the Sidney Kimmel Medical College submission states. "Clarius -- is poised to impact provider practice patterns, to expose clinicians to a new paradigm of care."
