The New Consensus-Based Recommendations: Improving Ultrasound Training in OB/GYN
In an effort to standardize and improve OB/GYN ultrasound training in residency programs, the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM) assembled a multi-society task force of experts to develop recommendations for an OB/GYN curriculum and competency evaluation process. In January 2018, American Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology, Journal of Ultrasound in Medicine, and Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology officially published the recommendations in a Consensus Report.
In response, SonoSim has tailored its curriculum to match all educational and assessment standards. Our cloud-based training is intended to help educators seamlessly integrate the AIUM recommendations into their current curriculum.
How the Recommendations Affect GME Programs
