ISUOG Outreach's recent program in Oman empowers local doctors on how to use and teach ultrasound in their regions.


The Sultanate of Oman is located on the Arabian Peninsula and neighbours Yemen to the west and Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates to the north. Famed for its frankincense, myrrh and gold, the country is known for its peace-loving people and authentic appeal. Yet despite all the allure of this mesmerising country, adequate training in OB/GYN ultrasound remains a significant challenge, disserving Omani women. In collaboration with the Omani Ministry of Health and GE Healthcare, ISUOG Outreach launched its program in Muscat training trainees from across the country who will become the future trainers for the nation.

Location: Muscat, Oman 

Hospital: The Royal Hospital, Muscat 

Training Dates: 

4-8 November 2017

8-12 April 2018

Phase 1

Trip 1: 5-9 November 2017

ISUOG Outreach partners with the Omani government to launch the first national ultrasound training in Oman

Phase 2

Trip 4: 25-29 August 2019

The ISUOG team returns to Muscat to inaugurate Phase II of the Outreach program. Much like Phase I, the program will consist of three trips to the country but the main goal will be to empower the new trainers (dubbed NUE Trainers – New Ultrasound Educators) to hone in on their teaching skills to then take their training forward in providing training nationwide, as envisioned by the Oman Government in working with ISUOG.

Trip 5: 02-06 February 2020

The ISUOG team returns to Muscat to inaugurate Phase II of the Outreach program. Much like Phase I, the program will consist of three trips to the country but the main goal will be to empower the new trainers (dubbed NUE Trainers – New Ultrasound Educators) to hone in on their teaching skills to then take their training forward in providing training nationwide, as envisioned by the Oman Government in working with ISUOG.
