Your kids can help teach doctors and earn money for their time

Zedu teaches doctors, nurses, midwives and paramedics from all around the world how to use ultrasound machines.

And to get good at what they do, they must practice and develop their skills on real kids of all ages.

This is where you can help…

To make sure our learners have the opportunity to develop their skills to be the best they can be, we’re always seeking the services of people willing to allow their kids to act as patient models for the delivery of our courses.

All you need to do is have some time, and the kids the ability to lie down on the job – simple! And you get paid $25 per hour for your time – what could be easier??

If you think you and your kids can help please fill out our registration form – we’d love to hear from you.

What does participation look like?

When you come to a Zedu course as a child patient model we make your and your kids time with us as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.

If it’s your first time, one of our team will take you through what we do and answer any of your questions. Then we’ll chat about what times you might have available to participate, and when we have a course running will book you into our system. A couple of days out from your session time, you’ll get a text message to confirm that everything is OK and finalise your participation.

On the day of your session you’ll be greeted at the front desk, and the kids provided food and refreshments. When our learners are ready you and your child will be asked to enter our Learning HQ. The setup looks like a large ultrasound room – with the latest technology available and private, comfortable scanning spaces. There will be no more than 5 medical professionals with you at any time – 4 learners and one of our experienced sonographer educators who will be leading the session.

Your child may be asked to lie down and show their tummy, chest or legs, or sit up and show their arms or back. Warm gel will be put on and each learner given the chance to take ultrasound pictures. You’ll get the opportunity to listen in and learn too.

Once the session is over we’ll give you a fresh clean towel to wipe any ultrasound gel off – and then have another chat to see what times you may have available for future sessions.

Easy!
