Course details

The course is delivered in three stages:

• Stage 1 lays down the foundation of ultrasound imaging and seeks to engage students in the safe application of ultrasound imaging in 3rd Trimester pregnancy for measurement of fetal biometry and liquor volume to include Doppler assessment.  

• Stage 2 is the continuing ultrasound training under the supervision of a competent practice educator, approved by SMU.  Established growth assessment unit midwives are expected to sign a clinical agreement form for the completion of supervised ultrasound training stipulated in Stage 2 document.

• Stage 3 addresses the students “fitness to practice” by undergoing an assessment of competency in 3rd  Trimester dating, liquor volume and umbilical waveform measurement in ultrasound.

On successful completion of Stage 2, midwives will be able to present for ultrasound competency assessment according to the guidelines set in Stage 3. The assessment of ultrasound competency will take place at the designated established ultrasound clinics.
