Certificates of competence

Ultrasound constitutes the cornerstone of modern obstetric care. It is therefore essential that sonographers are properly trained and that high standards are maintained by continuing education and audit. The Fetal Medicine Foundation (FMF) has introduced a process of comprehensive training, support and audit for the proper implementation of many aspects of Fetal Medicine.

The appropriate FMF Certificates of competence will be awarded to those sonographers who have:

  1. Attended a theoretical course
  2. Submitted a logbook of images of relevant scans

The certification is open to all those involved in obstetric ultrasound, including obstetricians, radiologists, radiographers and midwives. Details on each FMF Certificate of competence can be accessed from the menu on the left.
