OUR INSTRUCTORS

Headshot of Malka StromerMalka Stromer, MEd, BSc, RDMS, CRGS

Malka Stromer is a registered diagnostic medical sonographer whose clinical skills were fostered at the University Health Network and Mount Sinai’s Center of Excellence in Obstetrical Ultrasound, in Toronto, Canada. Malka has spent the past 15 years of her career sharing her enthusiasm for sonography as a professor, first at Mohawk College (the collaborative Mohawk-McMaster Institute for Applied Health Sciences) and then at Gateway Community College in Phoenix, Arizona.

Malka has spoken at various professional events and educational institutions on topics including sonography of the bowel and her research in the ethics of obstetrical ultrasound. She has authored a chapter in a sonography text, and has won a research award through the SDMS, and most recently the John and Suanne Rouche Excellence Award through the League for Innovation in the Community Colleges.

Malka is the owner of Sound Sports Imaging, LLC, and together with her colleague Jeannine Noble, now teaches POCUS and MSK ultrasound to health care professionals around the world.

Jeannine Noble, PT, MS, RMSK

Jeannine Noble received her physical therapy degree at AZ School of Health Sciences (AT Still) in 1999. In the final semester of school, she was introduced to musculoskeletal ultrasound and found it to be a unique specialty in ultrasound that incorporated the anatomy background of physical therapy. Although there was very little written about musculoskeletal ultrasound in 2000, she was fortunate enough to work with physicians who saw the benefits of this new diagnostic tool.

Jeannine has performed too many scans to count in multiple specialty practices including orthopedic, physical medicine and rehab, and podiatry. She has also done training for Healcerion, GE, Esaote, and Ezono. She has conducted trainings for private practices and large groups. She has worked on research projects at Midwestern University, AT Still, and various private entities.

Most recently Jeannine and her business partner, Malka Stromer, have been working with the faculty at Midwestern and AT Still helping to implement a Point of Care Ultrasound (POCUS) program. The goal of this program is to introduce ultrasound to osteopathic students and assist them in becoming proficient users of ultrasound for basic diagnostic and interventional procedures.
