Course content

Ultrasound Imaging has made a dramatic impact on patient diagnosis and management and the demand for ultrasound as a medical imaging tool has increased rapidly. An increasing range of professional groups are now using ultrasound; not only imaging departments.

As such the Ultrasound programme at the University of Salford is committed to supporting this increased demand by offering comprehensive training in clinical ultrasound.

The programme is regularly reviewed to guarantee it meets students’ requirements and offers a flexible part-time pathway to aid a wide range of healthcare professionals develop their professional ultrasound practice.

The MSc Ultrasound Imaging course is part-time and modular. It includes core mandatory modules, named clinical modules and negotiated modules which allow individual learning needs to be met.

The programme runs January – January.

The programme is accredited by CASE (Consortium for the Accreditation of Sonographic Education) which ensures the highest standards are met and students will be competent and able to practice professionally within their chosen field.
