Glasgow Caledonian University
This programme aims to deliver a high quality, educational programme to support healthcare practitioners in safe and effective medical ultrasound practice. The programme blends theoretical underpinning with practical experience to ensure that, on completion of learning, graduates are equipped with the theoretical underpinning and applied skills to competently undertake medical ultrasound examinations in clinical practice. Ultrasound is now performed by a variety of professionals facilitating improved health care and advanced practice. Our study options are therefore flexible to allow learning and assessment to be tailored to specific areas of practice. Our multi-disciplinary teaching team consists of academic experts and clinical specialists, ensuring our content is relevant, current, and evidence based. Our state-of-the-art simulation facilities (Medaphor scan trainer) and sonographic equipment (GES8) also allow opportunities to develop and rehearse practical scanning skills and gain feedback on ability.
PgC (60 credits): Principles of practice in medical ultrasound (general medical ultrasound or obstetric ultrasound or defined area of practice 1). PgD (120 credits): Evaluating evidence to develop research and inform practice; defined area of practice 2. MSc: Dissertation. The programme contains a practice placement and practical assessment and requires you to have access to practice in your own workplace and the support of a suitable mentor.
A range of assessment methods are used that are appropriate to the content and mode of delivery of each module. These include examinations, written assignments, reflective portfolio, oral and/ or poster presentations. Planned care competency and final clinical assessments are used to assess ability in practice.
