Medical Ultrasound

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.

Course modules

You must gain 120 credits for a Postgraduate Diploma. The most common route is for students to take the two core modules and 45 credits of clinical modules in year 1. In year two many students undertake the remaining 45 credits in term 1 (September to December), with a view to completing the PgDip in 18 months. Core modules: Fundamental Principles of Ultrasound Practice (15 credits); and Developing Advanced Practice (15 credits). Elective modules: Obstetric Ultrasound (30 credits); Gynaecology Ultrasound (15 credits); Abdominal Ultrasound (30 credits); Work Based Learning in Practice (includes clinical areas such as early pregnancy, small parts, DVT scanning) (15 credits).

Assessment methods

A blended learning approach is used: linking academic theory to clinical practice via work-based learning; formal key note lectures; seminars; film viewing tutorials; demonstrations/workshops; e-learning; shared learning; self-directed study and online case discussions. Participation in the learning is an essential component of the course.
