The OB/GYN Ultrasound courses combine obstetrics and gynecology with the primary emphasis devoted to the study of obstetrics. The first day is primarily gynecology, including lectures in orientation and terminology of the gynecology tract and hands-on transvaginal scanning labs. The remaining days are devoted to obstetrics, to include approximately 15 hours of dedicated lectures by experienced physicians and sonographers. Each afternoon is spent in scanning labs with obstetrical patients under the guidance of a registered sonographer.

“The time spent scanning real patients and putting into practice the lecture material was invaluable.”
James, Holland, MI
“My scanning instructor was so helpful with my training. When I successfully located a structure by ultrasound she was literally patting me on the back and was as excited as I was that I did it!”
Karissa, Troutman, NC
“The format of the course met my needs, concentrating the material into a very informative week. The [Winston-Salem] area made a great place to stay away from home.”
Nicole, Columbus, IN
“Excellent breadth and depth of information for a general OB/GYN practice with the practical aspect of hands-on scanning.”
