The objective of approved courses is to offer ISUOG’s official endorsement to quality educational programs in ultrasound in obstetrics and gynecology. In so doing ISUOG aims to encourage international liaison in education and to identify an internationally acceptable standard for further education in the field.

Applying for ISUOG course approval
Any individual member of ISUOG, organising courses or training programs in ultrasound in obstetrics and gynecology, or perinatal medicine, may apply for ISUOG approval of their course or program. The courses are organised independently of the Society but, provided they fulfil the requirements outlined below, can be formally recognised by ISUOG for their quality and educational value to ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynecology. The course can take place in any language as long as translation of the program is provided in English for approval.
Course formats can be developed together with the person(s) in charge of the local organisation. Sample basic and advanced templates for each course format can be downloaded from this webpage, however, these can be modified in agreement with the Education Committee.
