About the working group

The ultrasound working group unites colleagues interested in ultrasound usage in ressource-limited settings.

Currently it is offering sonography trainings in partner hospitals abroad and creating training tools and concepts. Courses started running in 2017 on a yearly basis. Newest course dates are to be found on this site. Our sonography courses are practical, patient-oriented and focused on a mutual learning experience amongst colleagues from different working backgrounds. Course participants are registrars and specialists from various countries and their number is limited to 20. Half the group consists of doctors training in the country where the courses are taking place for local capacity building. The other half consists of doctors from elsewhere offering them a unique insight into local pathologies and challenges connected to sonography diagnostics in settings with limited ressources.

Further ideas on the topic of sonography in resource limited settings are welcome.
