Course summary

This pathway supports clinicians from a range of professional backgrounds to access musculoskeletal ultrasound imaging. Students engage with the technical considerations that underpin this imaging modality prior to musculoskeletal scanning protocols. This face to face teaching occurs at weekends at the Colchester campus. Students need a mentor to complete the clinical learning components of the PGCert. The pathway includes optional modules covering ultrasound guided injections or service evaluation.

We will:

  • Provide you with critical understanding of the key concepts underlying musculoskeletal ultrasound imaging
  • Provide you with the opportunity to acquire practical musculoskeletal ultrasound imaging skills.
  • Ensure that you acquire a range of transferable employment related skills.
  • Enable you to evaluate and respond to professional considerations related to musculoskeletal ultrasound imaging.
  • Provide you with skills to access, and critically appraise, research findings to develop your own evidence-based practice.

Enhance your understanding of the essential principles of research design and to conduct an extensive piece of independent research including: planning, formulating, designing, choosing research methods, collecting data, analysing, interpreting and writing-up.

This course sits within our School of Sport, Rehabilitation and Exercise Sciences. This provides an exciting opportunity to join a community specifically focused on sports and exercise science, sports therapy and physiotherapy. This allows us to bring together our internationally recognised research, share knowledge, and enhance placement and vocational opportunities for our students and graduates.
