Program description

Awarded by: National University of Ireland

Ultrasound is now an integral component of antenatal care, a dominant technology in the daily practice of obstetrics, and is also essential in the management of high-risk pregnancies. This certificate course is particularly aimed at doctors specialising in the field of obstetrics, midwives who provide antenatal care and doctors working in general practice who provide antenatal care and is designed to confer competence, to an introductory level, to practice obstetric ultrasound.

The programme will cover the fundamental aspects of first, second and third trimester obstetric ultrasound, and more detailed obstetric ultrasound or gynaecology/fertility ultrasound scanning, through the provision of both theoretical and practical training. There is a significant emphasis on clinical experience, and the majority of lectures are delivered through an e-learning structure.
