Course summary

Course Summary

The fully accredited Post-Graduate Diploma course allows established healthcare clinicians working in the field of musculoskeletal and sports medicine to combine learning in the workplace with a recognised postgraduate qualification. You will complete two PG Certificates, specialising in Diagnostics and Injection Therapy. Upon completion of both, you will be awarded a PGDip in Musculoskeletal Ultrasonography. Our students include consultants from A&E departments and a range of clinicians from fields such as physiotherapy, sonography and podiatry. The course is also aimed at healthcare professionals within the fields of orthopaedics, osteopathy, rheumatology, and sports medicine. In the UK, there is a national shortage of sonographers, hence the need to involve other health professionals in this area of musculoskeletal ultrasound training. The use of ultrasound is becoming an increasingly popular and cost effective adjunct to MRI scans. The course is sponsored by BK Medical, who provide the relevant diagnostic equipment.

This course gives you the skills, experience and knowledge to allow you to undertake an extended scope of practice in the field of musculoskeletal medicine with the use of diagnostic ultrasonography. The Royal College of Radiologists has formally recognised that there is a national shortage of sonographers and acknowledged the need to involve other professional groups in this area of musculoskeletal ultrasound training. The advanced skills you acquire will help you complement patient management choices in your own clinical practice and to integrate academic learning with the development of higher levels of professional practice. The course also offers you professional development through an enhanced ability to deliver more holistic assessment and treatment options to patients under your care.
