Course summary

The MSc in Medical Ultrasound provides clinicians and medical scientists with intensive training in both the theoretical basis of medical ultrasound and the required scanning and diagnostic skills. The programme runs successfully through a combination of educational materials and opportunities to interact online alongside more traditional teaching methods. This blended format of delivery consists of teaching sessions (face-to-face or made available online), live webinars, discussion fora, formative and summative assessments administered through our virtual learning environment, and a range of resources to facilitate self-study and progression. This allows for much of the programme to be studied remotely if required.

The programme is both academic and vocational in nature, and is the only MSc of this type to offer a clinical attachment as part of it. As an academic degree, it does not provide candidates with an automatic qualification to practise as a sonographer, and national examinations may be required to achieve this. Nevertheless, the programme follows the core British Society of Echocardiography syllabus and prepares any future candidate for successful completion of the national examinations.

Each specialism is run independently in its respective hospital department. You will have exposure to the real life workings of a department and to patients, gaining hands-on experience through a placement with Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust. Our MSc in Medical Ultrasound is recognised as an important qualification for people who would like to pursue a career within the field of medical ultrasound. Many students go on to study for an MD(Res) or PhD, while most of the medically qualified students return to clinical practice. Others have gone into a wide range of careers, including specialised sonographers, physiologists, and other healthcare professionals in the NHS or abroad.
