Samsung Electronics Philippines Corporation (SEPCO), working in partnership with the Philippine General Hospital (PGH) and the PGH Medical Foundation, Inc. (PGHMFI), announced the opening of the first Samsung SONO School in the country. The Samsung SONO School is aimed at helping doctors in the Philippines to improve skills related to pre-natal ultrasounds.

Samsung President Chung Lyong Lee said: “The Samsung SONO School aims to provide doctors with quality training in ultrasound to enhance their diagnostic skills. Since our founding in 1969, Samsung has continued to push boundaries and pursue excellence to create positive change for people everywhere. We hope the school’s focus on education and training for medical practitioners will benefit the healthcare sector and go some way to improving lives.”

The Samsung SONO School features a training curriculum for up to 300 doctors yearly, across the Philippines that will result in a Continuing Medical Education accreditation. Comprising of 25 doctor-trainees per session, the programme features a combination of lectures and hands-on sessions.

Developed by the Philippine General Hospital’s Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, the curriculum offers targeted training in Point of Care, and Obstetrics and Gynaecology, allowing doctors to enhance their skills, particularly in the area of pre-natal ultrasounds. To improve the learning experience, Samsung has provided dedicated medical equipment such as the Samsung Medison Accuvix A30 Ultrasound Machine, the Samsung Portable Ultrasound MySono U6 and the Samsung Medison UGEO WS80A..

PGH Director Jose C. Gonzales said, “We are excited to be partnering with Samsung in this very meaningful programme, leveraging our proven track record in training programs based on medical simulation to provide valuable learning experiences to doctors.”

The Samsung SONO School is located at the Philippine General Hospital, where doctor-trainees can benefit from the dedicated spaces for theoretical and hands-on sessions. Doctor-professors from the College of Medicine of the Philippines - Manila (UP Manila) will conduct the training.

Regular internal reviews will be conducted to ensure the effectiveness of the programme. Trainees can send samples of their ultrasounds by email to their trainers so the trainers can critique their techniques.
