After three successful workshops in Chennai, Mumbai and New Delhi over the last 3 years, RCOG FOGSI collaboration brings you a programme with added value for teaching technical and non technical skills and a unique opportunity to learn 3D/4D scanning.

This exciting collaboration aims to unify standards and good practice of training in obstetric and gynaecological in ultrasound across all FOGSI accredited training centres.

Currently the postgraduate training programmes in obstetric and gynaecology in India do not have ultrasound training as an integral part of the curriculum. RCOG has introduced basic scanning as a part of the curriculum over a decade and this has now been incorporated as a procedural skill as part of the revised RCOG curriculum

Ultrasound is a useful tool in the right hands and when taught correctly. Although one may be an expert in scanning skills, the teaching of technical and nontechnical ultrasound skills is an art and science that can be learnt on this course. So don’t miss this opportunity!
