Our Medical Directors are a vital part of our Medical Clinics, and provide critical services for us often at their own expense and time. Here are some resources you can pass on to them to let them know how much we all appreciate them and their service to the clinics.
Physicians need 30-50 hours of AMA Category 1 CME to meet the AIUM requirements. Is your Medical Director looking for opportunities to sharpen his/her skills in reading Limited OB Ultrasounds?

Do you have a physician who would like to serve your center as a Medical Director but is not trained to read OB scans? Please read through all the options available for them and pass the information along to them.
Below are some great options you can offer to them as resources for both initial training and refresher courses. While Heartbeat does not have any direct knowledge of the courses, these resources were recommended by an RDMS ultrasound trainer who serves in the pregnancy center ministry, and we are passing on the information for the physician to investigate and choose the course best suited for their needs.

Another Great Resource From the AIUM:
Everything You Want to Know About First-Trimester Obstetric Ultrasound is a great learning tool for which physicians can earn up to 6.0 CME credits.
"After viewing this program, participants should be able to describe the sonographic signs of normal and abnormal gestations and define the role of ultrasound in the early diagnosis of fetal anomalies. The learner attributes are patient care, medical knowledge, and practice-based learning and improvement."
