Midwifery Ultrasound Assessment Development
The Midwifery Job Task Analysis Survey is closed. The survey results will help establish the content for the new midwifery ultrasound assessment examination.
Coming Soon in 2015...Midwifery Ultrasound Assessment Examination
The American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography (ARDMS) will be developing an ultrasound certificate examination for midwifery professionals.
In 2013, the ARDMS, in collaboration with the American College of Nurse Midwives® (ACNM®), developed a needs analysis survey exploring the possible development of a voluntary assessment examination for midwives in women's point-of-care ultrasound (screening and diagnostic studies). The surveys yielded a very positive response from the sonography community and ARDMS began researching and developing a midwifery ultrasound assessment.
Components of the midwifery ultrasound assessment examination are still being developed by ARDMS staff and the midwives examination development task force.
