Educating all for competence to practice ultrasound safely

EFSUMB’s objective is to promote the science, research and development of ultrasound and to publish these results, Guidelines and standards are proposed, advice concerning criteria for optimum equipment and techniques and clinical applications. EFSUMB hosts biennial congresses and promotes ultrasound meetings and courses of its National Society members and co-operates with the World Congress for Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology (WFUMB) and other international organisations whose purposes are consistent with those of EFSUMB.

Recruitment for the Delphi panel


We invite medical doctors, who have experience with performing ultrasound examinations in the primary care setting, to participate in a research project including a Delphi process. Our aim is to establish an EFSUMB ultrasound core curriculum for frontline physicians working in primary care.

If you are an experienced ultrasound user and teacher, you will have accumulated valuable experience as to which ultrasound scanning examinations are easy to learn and master, and which ultrasound scans require more training and experience. Such experience is important to the ultrasound community, and we therefore hope you will wish to share your knowledge with us.

For this research project, we will assemble a Delphi panel of ultrasound-experienced primary care doctors from 40 European countries. If you wish to be considered for the Delphi panel, you will need to answer a short questionnaire (please see QR Code or link below) so that we may determine if you meet our eligibility criteria. Many thanks for your time.

Kind Regards

The EFSUMB task force group
