New One Day option:  Limited Third Trimester OB Ultrasound
Designed for those working with limited scanning in the third trimester; Antepartum testing, OB Triage, and L&D.  Those doing ultrasound for amniotic fluid assessment, BPPs, fetal positioning, fetal viability, and placental positioning. 

National organizations including AWHONN and ACNM recommend a minimum of 8 hours didactic education.  All those utilizing the additional skill of sonography need to have an understanding of the physics of ultrasound, proper orientation, appropriate use, documentation, and basic billing.  The one day course accomplishes their requirements. 

 

For those with more in-depth and comprehensive learning needs, we recommend taking the two day seminar: Women’s Health Ultrasound.  The two day seminar combines day one above with a second day, with an expanded clinical and practical focus .   The expanded clinical skills/discussion for gynecologic and reproductive medicine, first trimester, and fetal biometry.  Those needing the additional didactic include midwives working toward the national certification exam, those doing gynecological and first trimester exams, those desiring a deeper understanding of billing, record keeping, documentation, storage and collaboration.  The two day course is excellent for physicians and midwives in triage and office practice.  Utilize this billable skill in practice to increase your productivity and provide more compassionate, timely, and comprehensive care to your patients.
