The Platte Valley Legacy Foundation has generously provided a grant for continuing education for a NPVMC medical sonographer to become more versatile by completing trainings for additional types of sonography.
Shelby (Wilder) Krugman is already a registered diagnostic medical sonographer with an emphasis on cardiovascular imaging at North Platte Valley Medical Center, however, Shelby and COO Eva Marie Popelka felt there was a need for more specialized training to better serve the community.
Eva Marie applied for a PVLF business grant to use for Shelby’s training. After going through an interview process, PVLF voted on and approved the grant, and Shelby was able to enroll in the continuing education program.
Shelby is now cross training and receiving certifications for performing specialized sonograms (otherwise known as ultrasounds) on the abdomen, small parts, and those related to men’s and women’s health. She is completing this training with SonoSim remote learning system that she can use at her desk when she’s not seeing patients at NPVMC. The training system even provides hands-on learning with a sonogram simulator. Shelby also went to Casper this month to get some additional clinical hands on training with our partners at Casper Medical Imaging.
Shelby recently moved back to the Platte Valley where she grew up.
