The Midwife Sonography examination assesses the knowledge, skills and abilities in the areas of the female reproductive system as well as the fetus in the first, second and third trimesters of pregnancy. By earning the Midwife Sonography Certificate, midwives gain a critical edge in promoting public safety in women's point-of-care ultrasound. The first application period is from January 4 – March 7, 2017. The exam will be administered from April 4 – May 4, 2017. Sign-up to recieve application reminders.
The initial roll out of the Midwife Sonography Certification exam was postponed in May 2016 because we received only a small number of applicants which meant we could not build a fair and defensible exam for midwives. Read more about the initial postponement of the examination in early 2016.
In order to earn the Midwife Sonography Certificate, the certified-midwife must pass both required components in the following order:
• Part One: Midwife Sonography Computer-based Examination
• Part Two: Practical Examination
