RANZCOG Ultrasound Workshop
(DRANZCOG Adv - optional)

Introduction to Ultrasound - Everything you need to know!

Limited places are available for DRANZCOG Adv trainees. CWH and DRANZCOG trainees are not eligible for this workshop.

This full day practical workshop developed by Associate Professor Janet Vaughan, focuses on basic ultrasound knowledge and skills. This workshop fulfils the requirement for post-December 2016 FRANZCOG trainees to undertake an approved Ultrasound Workshop in the first 2 years of training.

The five hours of practical hands-on scanning includes training in transabdominal and transvaginal imaging using a combination of pregnant women and pelvic phantoms. Five workstations are organised which enables interactive small group teaching. Each workstation has a pregnant subject, an experienced tutor and a Sonosite ultrasound machine.
