Nuffield Department of Women's and Reproductive Health celebrate the successful launch of scan.academy - an initiative dedicated to improving obstetric ultrasound through state-of-the-art education.

Virtual webinar

Huge congratulations to Professor Aris Papageorghiou who launched an exciting new initiative called scan.academy during the COVID-19 lockdown. There are few educational opportunities to “meet online” so scan.academy has met this need and enabled clinicians to have interactive discussions on the latest developments in obstetric ultrasound.

The webinars regularly have 3000-5000 attendees from up to 166 countries around the world; their record is 6000.

The full story is available on the Nuffield Department of Women's and Reproductive Health website
