A Worldwide Community: Join Us
The diversity of the Inteleos community of certified medical professionals is what makes this organization unique. Our network of Registrants and Certificants consist of sonographers; physicians who specialize in and/or practice ultrasound, cardiovascular MR, CT, and nuclear medicine, and vascular and endovascular medicine; and point-of-care ultrasound users in family medicine, emergency medicine, radiology, internal medicine, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, physical therapists, and midwives. Join us in creating a world where everyone has access to high quality healthcare delivered by providers who have demonstrated their proficiency. Together, we can save lives, establish trust, and expand equity in healthcare.
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) statement
Inteleos is committed to continually address issues of inequality and inequity through our areas of expertise, healthcare and certification. According to the World Health Organization, healthcare inequality, mainly due to a lack of access to quality care, is directly linked to many social injustices. As a healthcare organization, Inteleos’ mission to protect the public through individual certifications means that our goal is for all people to have access to the validated and extraordinary skills of our Registrants and Certificants. Unfortunately, healthcare inequality largely affects those who need medical care the most. As a global healthcare organization, we will continue to bolster our mission and work tirelessly towards increasing healthcare equity by striving to assure all people can get the highest quality healthcare possible. Racism and social injustices in all forms must end. Inteleos and its family of certification Councils, the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography (ARDMS), the Alliance for Physician Certification & Advancement (APCA) and the Point-of-Care Ultrasound (POCUS) Certification Academy, support peaceful protests and the implementation of lasting solutions to end racism, social injustice, inequality and inequity.
