Course summary

Course overview

The Consortium for the Accreditation of Sonographic Education (CASE) recommends a postgraduate certificate (PgCert) in medical ultrasound to be the minimum qualification required to practice ultrasound in the UK. This CASE-accredited course enables healthcare professionals from varying clinical backgrounds to become safe, competent ultrasound practitioners.

The course:

  • develops you academically to postgraduate level
  • enables you to become an autonomous practitioner with the skills to undertake high quality medical ultrasound examination competently and safely in a defined area of ultrasound practice, placing the person at the center of care
  • enhances your critical skills to enable you to promote high quality evidence and care
  • promotes an ethos of caring, compassion, professionalism, excellence and lifelong learning
  • enables you to function as a valued member of the multi-disciplinary healthcare team.

How you learn:

The teaching is delivered at Teesside University through academic blocks.
The clinical route is developed over five two-week blocks.
The point of care route is delivered over five two-day blocks to suit busy clinical workloads.

Both routes are supported through e-learning. You will also develop your practical skills within your clinical placement. It is a fusion which allows you to become an autonomous safe ultrasound practitioner. Teaching methods used during your academic blocks include lectures, seminars and practical workshops. The state-of-the-art Regional Ultrasound Simulation Centre here on campus is full incorporated into the teaching.

How you are assessed:

You are assessed by a written assignment, examinations and a practical triggered assessment.

Career opportunities:
