Obstetrics care in low-resource settings is especially hindered by critical but incomplete information about the mother and baby. Ultrasound is a lifesaving technology in such settings. This course develops skills in early pregnancy ultrasound (confirmation, location), third trimester ultrasound (parity, pulse, pocket, placenta, presentation, postpartum evaluation), and RUSH examination (Rapid Ultrasound for Shock and Hypotension).


This is a hybrid learning experience that combines online preparation with a one-day in-classroom workshop to master hands-on skills and assess achievements.

The online learning experience requires about 6 hours and must be completed prior to participating in the in-classroom workshop..


Give special attention to the two last sections. In-Classroom Obstetrics Ultrasound Skills Workshop Resources includes the Obstetrics Ultrasound Skills Demonstration Checklist. Print a paper copy, bring it with you to the workshop, demonstrate your skills throughout the day, and have each skill signed off by a course faculty. At the conclusion of the day, please take a photo of your completed checklist and then turn in the paper copy to the course faculty.
