Ultrasound imaging has become integral to the practice of obstetrics and gynecology practice because it offers important information regarding the diagnosis, treatment and preventative care of many common gynaecological disorders and early pregnancy. With increasing educational demands and limited hours in residency programs, dedicated time for training and achieving competency in ultrasound has diminished substantially. Given the clinical importance and widespread use of ultrasound imaging in obstetrics and gynecology it is important to equip the practitioner with latest advances in ultrasonography competence and skills.
The focus of this three-day blended learning hands-on workshop is to equip participants with recent advances in ultrasonography and the required skills to competently perform basic and advanced gynecologic sonographic examinations. Examination strategies for various procedures are explored, as well as the integration of ultrasound into established clinical practices. Participants will receive access to online didactic lecture course materials before the hands-on workshop, where they will benefit from live models and hands on experience supervised by a faculty member. Case studies will be presented to familiarize the participants with normal and abnormal findings.
