ISUOG's state-of-the art basic training program provides trainees that are new to ultrasound an introduction to essential topics in obstetrics and gynecology.

Our Vision & Mission

Basic Training's vision is that every ultrasound scan provider globally is competent and that the diagnosis of obstetric and gynecologic conditions is effective so that women’s health outcomes improve. The Basic Training mission is to ensure that all scan providers gain an adequate education in the use of ultrasound in obstetrics and gynecology so as to be able to scan independently. 

A Word From Our Chair

In all aspects of our lives, education is empowerment, allowing us to survive, strive and make positive change in the world around us. This is most critical in matters pertaining to women’s health and well-being: women’s greatest weapon against health inequality is education, which is proven to improve maternal morbidity and mortality.

To this end, ISUOG has consecrated an army of dedicated health care providers along with substantial online resources in order to provide the highest possible education. Given that solid foundations are the key to sustenance, retention and progress, we proudly present you with ISUOG Basic Training geared at all probe handlers for the highest quality sonorgraphic education commencing with the basics. Our curriculum has been put together by experts in the field who have dedicated their careers to education and ensuring that the most complex of topics are delivered in the simplest of manners. 

I thus invite you to feel the momentum and be part of this “era of ISUOG education” commencing at the very beginning with our Basic Training offerings whether it be online or via our courses around the world. 

Together we shall make our world safer, more equitable and more humane. - Dr. Reem Abu-Rustum, Basic Training Task Force Chair
