Our Training Workshops

Organised by Professor Nazar Amso PhD (London) FRCOG, FHEA, Professor in Obstetrics and Gynaecology at Cardiff University School of Medicine, each three day workshop runs from Thursday to Saturday and consists of six intensive sessions of lectures, hands-on practical sessions and live scanning.

Courses are accredited by the Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare of the RCOG.

MedaPhor’s blended ultrasound training environment integrates all of its training modalities into condensed three-day hands-on Obstetrics & Gynaecology courses at the University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff.

The first hands-on Transvaginal Ultrasound Workshop organised by Professor Amso was held in the spring of 1992 at Newcastle General Hospital. Over the years the workshops moved to the Royal Victoria Infirmary, Newcastle, the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Gateshead, and from 1998 they have been based at the University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff. Ever since, ultrasound training has become more thorough, structured and a core skill for UK specialist trainees.

Recognising the benefits of new technology, MedaPhor Ltd, a partnership between Cardiff University, Industry and Computer experts and Educationists, was setup in 2004 to develop novel e-learning modules and training simulators to support the learning process. In 2007 MedaPhor introduced its concept of a skills lab ‘Blended Ultrasound Training Environment’ to ensure that key skills are acquired before any clinical contact with patients.
