    Almost since the beginnings of clinical ultrasound in the 1950s there has been a recognized need for appropriate education.

    The rapid increase in ultrasound utilization throughout the world over the past several decades has made this need more acute.

    It has been recognized by individuals, organizations, as well as by the World Health Organization that there is a need to improve ultrasound education.

    As a result of this, a WHO study group in diagnostic ultrasound met in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania USA in March of 1996 to evaluate the problem of education and to look at ways of improving the training as well as the clinical expertise of both physicians and non-physicians throughout the world.

    This meeting, attended by experts from around the world, has resulted in the development of a WHO study group report entitled « Training in Diagnostic Ultrasound : Essential, Principles and Standards, » which is soon to be published.

    I had the privilege of being elected chairman of the group and, thus felt it appropriate that I take this opportunity to discuss the conclusions of this report which I believe will have a lasting impact on ultrasound education into the third millenium.

    It is my hope that this lecture will stimulate many to follow the proposals and to obtain a copy of this report when it is officially published.

    The following are direct quotes from the final draft of the conclusions of this report.
