Frequently Asked Questions
Does the first trimester exam have to be performed transvaginally?
Yes. If your practice is seeking accreditation in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd trimester OB, the first trimester exam for the primary site must be transvaginal. However, first trimester studies from additional sites/mobile units can be transabdominal.
If applying for first trimester accreditation only, at least one of the four exams for the primary site must be transvaginal.
