Two Yale School of Medicine Teams Excel in SonoSlam, a National Ultrasound Competition
“30 teams, 3 rounds, 1 Champion!” The American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM), used this slogan to advertise its March 24, 2018 SonoSlam competition to medical school students. While this competition, held in New York City, did not get as much attention as the NCAA Men’s Basketball Elite Eight tournament games played on the same day, there was great excitement among the participants, including two teams of Yale School of Medicine (YSM) students. Samara Fox, Keval Desai, and Michael Boyle, all third-year students, took second place honors, while Cortlandt Sellers, Andrew Silverman, and Nancy Huynh, all in their fourth year at YSM, finished sixth, in this national event with 24 teams competing. This was the first time in SonoSlam’s three-year history that a Yale team has finished in the top ten.
