Sonography students are so focused on learning how to perform sonograms that they tend to forget that there is more to our profession that scanning patients. Encouraging professional writing and research can help students gain confidence and foundational skills that enable them to take advantage of professional opportunities in the future as well as broadening their understanding of what it means to be a professional sonographer.  This presentation discusses advantages and roadblocks to inspiring students to participate in research and writing opportunities within an already crowded sonography curriculum.


  • Discuss the value of professional writing and research skills for sonographers
  • List common roadblocks to overcome when mentoring writing and research for sonography students
  • Describe potential solutions for overcoming roadblocks and incorporating writing and research into a sonography curriculum
