Fetal Medicine and High Risk Pregnancy

Joint RCOG/BMFMS Course

22-24 May 2023


Course overview

Develop and refine your knowledge on the clinical challenges and dilemmas commonly faced in late pregnancy and diagnosis of fetal anomalies and disorders.

This combined course is suitable for consultants with an interest in antenatal ultrasound as well as those training in fetal medicine as a subspecialty or for the Advanced Training Skills Modules (ATSMs) on Fetal Medicine or the High Risk Pregnancy.

This course is valid for three years, and must be completed prior to completion of the practical component of the ATSM. It also supports the obstetric RCOG intermediate ultrasound modules.

High Risk Pregnancy (Monday 22 – Tuesday 23 May)

The focus of this course will include late pregnancy and the many aspects, which make managing high-risk pregnancy challenging.

Internationally recognised speakers will cover topics with a problem-based approach in both fetal and maternal conditions including:

  • Growth restriction
  • Red cell alloimmunisation
  • Obesity
  • Psychiatric illness
  • Substance misuse
  • The course is designed to cover the curriculum for the High Risk Pregnancy ATSM, but is also ideal for obstetricians wishing to increase their understanding and confidence in managing pregnancies with pre-existing and newly recognised risk factors.

Fetal Medicine (Tuesday 23 – Wednesday 24 May)

Learn about the latest developments in fetal anomalies and disorders and hear presentations on how to manage diagnosis and counselling.

Delegates will experience a dynamic mixture of lectures and interactive case-based discussions which will be used to review advanced ultrasound techniques and common clinical dilemmas, as well as rare conditions.

This course will cover the curriculum for the ATSM on Fetal Medicine, but will also be of benefit to all healthcare professionals involved with antenatal fetal ultrasound.
