Day 2 in Sudan: practical training

We’re on with day two with ISUOG Outreach in Sudan. The morning saw practical training for the most part, with trainees divided amongst the trainers. Each group had an average of six patients and the instructors focused on helping trainees understand how they will be assessed on ultrasound competency.

The trainees also conducted a pre-test in 1st and 2nd/3rd trimester ultrasound in order to measure and understand their current knowledge in OB/GYN ultrasound scanning. Lectures today focused on early pregnancy, 1st trimester and abnormal pregnancies. The team had the chance to hear a lecture on abnormal early pregnancy from Observer and Trainer, Dr Sami Mahmoud who is Secretary General of the African Federation of Obstetrics and Gynecology (AFOG).

The trainees are enthusiastic and very focused, with hands raised in eagerness to understand more. The team has only made a scratch in the Sudan program, but already progress can be seen. Stay tuned!!
