Description:

The Vascular Ultrasound course aims to provide you with an understanding of the principles and practices of vascular ultrasound. This course addresses the practical applications of ultrasound through an understanding of the principles of scientific clinical investigation and facilitates the acquisition of the skills necessary for clinical practice. Developing your clinical proficiency is, therefore, an integral part of the course.

The course offers you some flexibility over the choice of modules and whether to study for a full master’s qualification, a Postgraduate Certificate or Diploma. The MSc pathway is a 27-month course that requires modules totalling 180 credits including a research project worth 60 credits.
