Course content

This course is suitable for a range of health care professionals who have experience in radiography, nursing, midwifery or other related professions.

The course enables students to achieve the academic qualifications and clinical skills needed to pursue a career in ultrasound or to develop current skills further.

Students need a clinical placement in a recognised department, to engage in a wide range of ultrasound examinations for the duration of the course.

Teaching is also supported by specialist guest speakers who provide current, relevant course material.
