About First Trimester Course

After the Covid-19 outbreak, all training activities throughout the world is stopped. With this circumstance all activities have been turned to online courses and webinars at least at the moment. During this period, we had a webinar on Covid-19 in pregnancy with the light of WAPM Covid-19 Registry on the 9th of May, 2020. Another online course on “Fetal Brain” was organized with a great success at 20-21 July 2020 which you can see the recorded sessions if you are registered.

First Trimester Examination” is the topic for upcoming online course. I am grateful that Valentina De Robertis as the member of WAPM has prepared this course program in a good way as the coordinator of this course. I am hoping that it will be useful for your scientific activity and clinical practice. It is free of charge course.
