Obstetric Ultrasound Skills the basics and beyond

Start: 06/06/2019 08:30
End: 06/06/2019 17:00

Location: RCOG
Programme: Obstetric Ultrasound Skills.pdf

The RCOG curriculum now requires that all trainees have practical training in basic obstetric ultrasound, comprising two modules on early pregnancy ultrasound (8-12 weeks) and ultrasound assessment of fetal size, liquor and the placenta.

These two practical modules need to be underpinned with a sound theoretical basis, which this course is designed to offer. It also will serve as the basis for those trainees developing their skills further with the intermediate ultrasound modules both in obstetrics and gynaecology.

This is primarily a theoretical course however, this course will provide opportunity for basic hands on training in the basic technique of TV ultrasound and TA assessment of pregnancy. The focus will be on technique and practical training to enhance the scan image quality, providing participants with an opportunity to put the theory of the early morning lectures into practice.
