The Ob-Gyn Ultrasound course combines obstetrics and gynecology with the primary emphasis devoted to the study of obstetrics.

The first day is primarily gynecology, including lectures in orientation and terminology of the gynecological tract and hands-on transvaginal scanning labs. The remaining days are devoted to obstetrics, to include approximately 15 hours of dedicated lectures by experienced physicians and sonographers. Each afternoon is spent in scanning labs with obstetrical patients under the guidance of a registered sonographer.
