There are decreasing clinical training opportunities for MFM/OB and trainees to get the required training in ultrasound-guided invasive procedures. Learn about available options for simulating ultrasound-guided invasive procedures, gain experience and guidance on the basics of these procedures, and fine-tune your skills with low-frequency procedures.    

This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education through the joint providership of Global Learning Collaborative (GLC) and SMFM. GLC is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.  

Global Learning Collaborative designates this enduring material for a maximum of 4 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

  1. To familiarize the participants with available options for simulating ultrasound-guided invasive procedures.
  2. To introduce the participants to curricula specific for different ultrasound guided invasive procedures
  3. To provide novice participants with instruction on the basics of ultrasound guided invasive procedures
  4. To train experienced providers on how to establish a ultrasound guided invasive procedure simulation program at their institution
  5. To demonstrate how simulation can be used by experienced providers to maintain skill with low-frequency procedures
