High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) surgery is a noninvasive thermal ablation treatment modality, and its clinical application is increasingly introduced into gynecological practices in China and Asia. To further strengthen the technology's standardized management, the Asia-Pacific Association for Gynecologic Endoscopy and Minimally Invasive Therapy (APAGE) collected the consensus of well-known experts in the field. They shared opinions on the management standards of the basic requirements for developing this HIFU technology in medical institutions, operators' training requirements, technical management, HIFU training program, etc., Based on the recommendations from APAGE, Hong Kong Focused Ultrasound Surgery Association developed its proposed HIFU training program for gynecologists in Hong Kong. This paper will present the training requirements and hopefully share its training and credentialing rationales with other HIFU medical institutes.
