FMF Registered Course

Course Directors: Cihat Şen – Zehra Kavak 

This course is being organized by two societies “The Fetal Medicine Foundation that is a registered charity in England and The Turkish Perinatology Society that is a registered society in Turkey”. They promote research and training in the field of fetal and maternal medicine.


The objectives of this course are:

   - to review the current status of genetic screening and diagnosis for chromosomal abnormalities

   - to discuss the possibility of early diagnosis of major fetal anomalies

   - standardization of screening method of chromosomal abnormalities

   - training in a structured manner of nuchal measurements and biochemical screening

   - guidelines for the measurement of NT and biochemical screening

   - Second trimester ultrasound scanning for structural anomalies

With this course , the appropriate certificate will be awarded to those sonographers (obstetricians, radiologists and midwives) who:

·Have attended the course and passed the examination

·Have submitted a logbook of thermal images of relevant 50 scans

·Have attended a clinical session in the presence of an approved examiner and     

    demonstrated their ability to carry out the relevant scans

·Will have a free software for nuchal screening and regular auditing by Fetal Medicine 


 The practice of fetal medicine has major implications, not only for the individual family, but also for society as a whole. Although a high proportion of pregnancies would benefit from expertise in this area, for many conditions there is little agreement concerning standards of care. This is partly because fetal–maternal medicine is a rapidly expanding discipline with those providing care obtaining information from often outdated textbooks and from the conflicting findings of research papers. In introducing the Diploma in Fetal Medicine it is aimed to build on the existing subspecialization programs and raise training standards internationally. It is also intended to establish an international network of subspecialist centers undertaking collaborative research and promoting standards in clinical practice through the exchange of ideas and experiences.
