With use of portable ultrasonography machines at the primary health care settings, the need for education and training for primary health care practitioners became important.

During the Congress of WFUMB held in San Paolo in May 2013, Mongolian Society of Diagnostic Ultrasound (MSDU) put in for establishing Center of Education (COE) in Mongolia. WFUMB COE Mongolia established on 25 August 2013 at the Urguu Maternity Hospital No1 in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. Since that WFUMB COE Mongolia has conducted a training for primary health care practitioners three times a year for 3 months. 320 doctors were trained. Out of them 80 were rural doctors and 240 family doctors.
