Contact information for each organization is listed in their online record. Use the "advanced search" tools to focus your search even more and find an organization that's right for you!

Please consult this list of Organizations Suspended by the University as of Spring 2020. Some suspended organizations continue to operate despite the action taken by the university. We encourage you to review an organization’s status before becoming involved with it, especially because sometimes an organization’s status is revoked due to serious concerns like hazing and other behavior that risks your health and safety.

During spring semester 2020, many student organizations will be operating virtually while others may suspend their operations. Please use the search features below to find and contact organization leaders for specific details about their plans.

Family Medicine Point-of-Care Ultrasound

Campus: Columbus
Status: Active - New/Re-Established II
Purpose Statement: The specialty of family medicine has a wide breadth intended to provide comprehensive care to all body systems of patients of all ages, in all ranges of severity. As a field uniquely positioned to appreciate the needs of the whole person and community, family medicine is rapidly increasing its use of ultrasound as a means of portable, quick, easy-to-teach imaging that provides information to make diagnostic and therapeutic decisions. Our organization brings together learners of ultrasound of all stages and skill levels, including undergraduate, professional/graduate students with resident and attending faculty and practicing physicians. We recognize the importance of a learning pipeline in providing a better future for family medicine patients, and keep in mind the possible use of ultrasound in an outpatient/non-hospital setting, and resource-poor settings. We intend to increase competence and expand knowledge through lectures, hands-on teaching sessions, pretend-patient events requiring ultrasound, and journal clubs. Scans of interest will include abdominal aneurysm screens, ruling out a leg clot, examining the heart and lungs, finding fluid in a trauma, judging fluid build-up in kidneys, thyroid nodules/size, joint injections and exams, pregnancy and mass exams, gallbladder exams, and procedural guidance, with a significantly greater emphasis on non-emergent scanning.
