Course summary

We have designed our Medical Ultrasound course for radiographers, doctors, midwives, scientists and others who want to practice clinical ultrasound in their professional roles. Our lectures are organised in block release, in conjunction with compulsory clinical placements so that you can take the course while still working. In accordance with accepted good practice, the course integrates theory with practice, meaning that you will perform diagnostic ultrasound examinations as you learn.

Key benefits:

  • Accredited by the Consortium for the Accreditation of Sonographic Education (CASE).
  • Expert outside speakers contribute extensively to the course.
  • Located in the heart of London and part of the Faculty of Life Sciences & Medicine, the course attracts students from a variety of disciplines.
  • Practice focused: you will develop and apply diagnostic ultrasound imaging skills in your own clinical training placement.
  • Substantial student-tutor contact time supplemented by e-learning.

Description:

The course, accredited by the Consortium for the Accreditation of Sonographic Education (CASE), will teach you how to use ultrasound imaging in clinical practice. You will be taught the principles and practice of ultrasound science, the practical applications of ultrasound and develop an appreciation of the principles of scientific investigation. Throughout the course, we will monitor and assess your clinical practice. This does not just mean technique, but also knowledge, comprehension, communication, analysis and management – in terms of the patient, your technology and your personal qualities. We will also discuss medico-legal, ethical and professional issues.

Through an introduction to the physics, equipment, safety and relevant professional issues alongside clinical modules, you will develop an understanding of current techniques and proficiency in medical ultrasound. You may choose clinical modules in obstetric and gynaecology ultrasound, general medical ultrasound or vascular ultrasound. You can also take a negotiated work-based module to meet your individual needs within the PG Certificate in Specialist Ultrasound Practice. These options allow you to build a personalised, proficiency-based learning programme.

Career prospects:

The majority of our graduates go on to work as a sonographer or ultrasound practitioner in the NHS or the Independent Sector and become advanced and consultant practitioners. Others use ultrasound scanning proficiency as part of their clinical examination of patients.
