I concur, tech workroom-chair-time does should not substitute for probe-gel-
patient contact time, however it often times does, sometimes due to the student,
sometimes due to the staff, lab operations. Unfortunately most programs (in the
US) do not objectively measure probe time, instead only clinical time (which often
times mostly consists of chair-time).

>Clinical time and probe time is not the same amount of time. Some clinical sites
are better at allowing students probe time. And, during lab time, most students
have to share equipment time.
>So, I don't think students really get as much probe time as you would expect.
