Gynecological Ultrasound

Gynecological Ultrasound
Course Code - 005


  • students preparing to write the Registry credentialing examination in Obstetrics & Gynecology (OB/GYN)
  • registrants who wish to review current gynecological ultrasound and acquire 30 educational credits or units
  • cross training into gynecological ultrasound

This is a comprehensive course on all aspects of gynecological ultrasound. No other textbook is required. The course includes an atlas of ultrasound images depicting normal anatomy, techniques, common artifacts and interpretation pitfalls, and pathologies.

This course is organized into four modules. An "open book" assignment consisting of multiple-choice questions is completed online by the student at the end of each module. The course is completed by taking a "closed book" final examination which serves as a "warm up" for the Gynecology portion of the Registry credentialing examination in OB/GYN.

This course has been evaluated by the Society of Diagnostic Medical Sonography (SDMS) and is approved for 30 CME/CEU/CPD credits.

A Burwin Course Certificate for Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynecology is issued to students who complete and pass both Gynecological Ultrasound (course #005) and Obstetrical Ultrasound (course #006). The minimum passing grade for each course is 70%.
