SonoSim Launches Cloud-Based OB-GYN Ultrasound Training Modules

January 19, 2018 — SonoSim Inc. has officially launched a comprehensive OB-GYN ultrasound training solution in support of a recently announced consensus-based training curriculum. SonoSim's cloud-based training platform is intended to help educators implement a newly announced and widely endorsed OB-GYN training curriculum and competency assessment recommendations. The American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM) assembled a multi-society task force of experts in obstetrics and gynecology, radiology, and medical education to develop a standardized curriculum and competency evaluation process. In January 2018, the American Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology, the Journal of Ultrasound in Medicine and Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology officially published the recommendations.

"As residency programs in obstetrics and gynecology and radiology have had to add more breadth of training into their curricula, the time spent learning ultrasound has likely diminished in many programs," stated Prof. Alfred Z. Abuhamad, M.D., Mason C. Andrews Chairman and vice dean for clinical affairs at Eastern Virginia Medical School. "Given the technical difficulty inherent in ultrasound examinations, the presence of a comprehensive, standardized, and collaborative process for ultrasound training will significantly enhance the expertise of practitioners and the overall quality of ultrasound examinations."

SonoSim's comprehensive OB-GYN ultrasound training program will deliver 14 training modules with over 125 SonoSimulator hands-on, simulation-based training cases across a variety of essential OB-GYN topics. Each SonoSim Module consists of cloud-based didactic lessons, knowledge assessments and real-patient hands-on training cases, including transvaginal ultrasound scanning.
