OB/GYN Ultrasound Simulation Curriculum
Based on the AIUM Consensus Report (1)
Ultrasound imaging has become an essential part of Obstetrics and Gynecology residency training programs. In 2018 the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine assembled a special task force from multiple societies, to create “a standardized curriculum and competency assessment tools for obstetric and gynecologic ultrasound training in residency programs” (1)
The U/S Mentor OB/GYN simulation curriculum offers 4 levels simulation training and competency assessment component in compliance with the AIUM consensus report.
Through lectures, demonstrations and hands-on scanning, the U/S Mentor OB/GYN simulation curriculum provides a learning and training platform for performance of a comprehensive anatomic and physical evaluation of the fetus and maternal organs.
Delivering scanning opportunities, the curriculum helps residents develop the fundamental knowledge, theoretical background, and mastery of skills for effective diagnostic ultrasound.
