Course content

The Specialist Ultrasound Practice PG Cert is a part-time study programme that consists of two required modules. You will complete the course within nine months, studying January to September. You will study Fundamentals of Ultrasound as well as Negotiated Learning with Clinical Proficiency in Medical Ultrasound modules.

It is possible to study The Negotiated Learning module as a standalone module if you are a qualified sonographer and wish to gain academic credits in a proficiency-based topic that will advance your practice. Alternatively, you may study the Negotiated Learning with Clinical Proficiency and Fundamentals of Ultrasound modules to gain a CASE accredited PG Certificate and subsequently, add further modules to achieve the PG Diploma or MSc in Medical Ultrasound.
